Chinta chiguru mamsam / meat in new tramrind leaves

We always have some form of curry or dal with chinta chiguru whenever in season wether it is with mutton or with dry fish but it is yummy and a delicacy in Andhra pradesh. Here is one version of how mom makes it will post the vegitarian version as well when mom makes it, but everybody at home loves the non veg version. Mom has made it with minced mutton but u can use mutton instead.


Chinta chiguru / new tamrind leaves: 200 gms
Mutton / minced meat: 500 gms
Onions : 3 medium sized chopped
Tomatoes : 4 medium sized chopped
green chillies : 3 to 4 slit
ginger garlic paste: 1 1/2 tbs
turmeric: 1/4 tsp
chilli powder : 1tbs
coriander powder : 1tbs
raw mango : 1/2 sliced (this is optional)
Oil: 3 to 4 tbs
cloves: 3
cinnamon: 1/2 inch


Heat oil in a kadai to that add the cloves and cimmamon then add the onions and saute untill translucent, then add the ginger garlic paste and saute. Now add the minced meat turmeric powder, green chillies, red chilli & coriander powder, tomatoes , salt a cup of water and cover and cok for abt 10 to 15 mins or untill half cooked.
