Bhuna gosht (meat in thick gravy)

Assalamo alaikum,

Eid_Mubarak every body!!! It was an amazing Eid for me lots of work but with lots of fun.MashAllah my preparation started way ahead of Eid day prepping my kitchen ,fridge and home for Eid .i had to empy out my freezer as lots of meat would be coming in on Eid day and second day of Eid. I fried lots of onions so on Eid day cooking would be quicker .I bought some pearl onion ,peeling them would have been hard task but somebody told me soaking them in water would make easier peeling it surely made it easier to peel then I put those in a jar with white vinegar ( this is good to eat with meat helps with digestion). I sharpened my knife as we will be cutting big pieces of meat into smaller pieces that comes after Qurbani .I made also sawaiayian will surely post that recipe too inshAllah.

Also I had prepare clothes for kids,myself and my hubby dear new clothes only needed some ironing for morning prayers eid day.

Then on Eid day ,I hope it's not getting boring for you guys I'll just make it short after Eid prayers me and my younger ones went to Eid carnival and my husband and older boys went to slaughter house for Qurbani.i had really good time at the carnival organized by our mosques ,when it was almost time for my husband to come home with meat I went t home .i cooked kaleji (goat liver ) on Eid day,lamb stew and Grail .I was so busy could not take picture of all those dishes but I will surely post the recipe inshAllah.
