The secret to making soft and tender pathar gosht is to have tender meat, hammer the boneless mutton pieces until they are slightly flat and soft.
In a grinder add coriander leaves, mint leaves, green chilli, ginger, garlic and grind into a smooth paste.
In a bowl, add the mutton pieces, the green paste, all the dried spices and papaya puree.
If you don’t have papaya puree you can use a store-bought tenderizer or vice versa.
Now mix and mash this marinade well into every single piece of mutton and let it sit for minimum 30-40 minutes, if you have the time, you can let it marinate for at least 2 hours.
Place a non-stick pan or grilled tawa on high heat and let his heat up well, now add a tspn of oil and spread properly.
Place the flat mutton pieces side by side and let this cook on high heat for 5 minutes on both sides.
Once both the sides have been cooked on high heat, drizzle some ghee and lower the flame, cover with a lid and let this cook for another 10 minutes.
Once both sides have been cooked on low flame with the lid one, take off the lid and let all the oil and masala that is in the pan heat off.
Once the pan is dry and you know the meat is cooked, you can take off the heat and serve.
