Some tips:-

1. As the speciality of this dish is it's dark brown colour, for that if you have an iron Kadai, or iron wok use it. It will help you to get the dark colour in your Mutton curry.

2. There are some other processes which I have used, like using some caramelized oil, and liquor of tea also helps a lot to get that dark brown colour in the special Golbari style Mutton kosha.

3. The onions should be sliced very finely, and also you can use your hands and open the layers of the sliced onions,

it gives a nice texture in the gravy and also helps to caramelize well.

4. I prefer to use Kashmiri chilli powder in Golbarir Mutton kosha recipe, cause it increases the colour of this dish, and also not too much spicy. But you can use normal red chilli powder also.

5. As we are cooking this Mutton curry in a pan or Kadai, and not using any pressure cooker, the meat takes more time to cook well. To make the process a little bit quicker, you need to use raw papaya, as it helps a lot to cook the meat quickly.

6. Usually, I use cubed raw papaya in mutton curry, but for this special Golbari kosha mangso or Golbarir Mutton kosha, am using grated raw papaya, so that it can be mixed well with the meat. And also use it at the time of marination, and again add some at the time of cooking.

7. And for this recipe, marinating the Mutton is very important, and it should be at least 5-6 hours, or overnight can be the best.

8. As this Golbari style Mutton kosha is cooked without a pressure cooker, it always takes time, and how much you'll cook it, it'll help to get the dark colour of this dish.
