Most of us decide the recipe first then buy the ingredients. But I normally check what I have, then decide what to make. I am telling because I have lots green chillies and curry cut meat. So I think that Rezala will be the perfect recipe. Rezala is meat curry cooked with green chillies. For green chillies it has a fresh flavor. If you want, you can use saffron imitation. Personally I cook with saffron imitation.


• 1 kg curry cut beef/mutton

• 3 tablespoon yogurt

• 3 tablespoon onion paste

• 1 tablespoon ginger paste

• 1 tablespoon garlic paste

• ½ teaspoon turmeric powder

• 1 teaspoon coriander powder

• 1 teaspoon sugar

• 2 cardamom pod

• 1”cinnamon stick

• 1 bay leaves

• 8-10 green chillies

• ½ cup oil

• Salt to taste

How to cook:

1. Mix all ingredients except chillies in a pan. You can marinate it for 1 hour.

2. Heat the pan and cook it under closed lid till oil is separated.

3. Add 3 cups water and green chillies.

4. Cook it under closed lid on medium heat about 30-35 minutes or till meat becomes tender.

5. Serve hot rezala with rice, palou , roti or paratha and enjoy the fresh flavour of green chillies.
