Laal Maas

This red fiery dish is a popular Rajasthani meat dish. It can be prepared as hot as you like. It gets its colour from the chillies used. If you want the bright red color but do not want all that chilli, substitute half a portion of the dried chillies with Kashmiri chillies which impart a red colour and no heat.
