Ramadan Kareem:Kharay Masaly Ka Gosht or Stew & Award

Kharay Masaly Ka Gosht or Stew ... A quick and easy stew recipe, meat cooked with onions, tomatoes & whole spices. I have previously shared my family recipe for Stew here using onions & yoghurt. My aunt makes an excellent stew with tomatoes. I was looking for the recipe when I came across this recipe made in a Pakistani food show, tried it & it turned out great. It was quite spicy for us, so I made some changes to reduce the heat. Here's the recipe:
