Gobi Gosht

Gobi Gosht is one of those very regular dishes that are prepared and had at many Hyderabadi households. It is simple to prepare, and is healthy enough. There are many other ways to prepare this very simple vegetable that is mostly disliked by so many people because of the strong aversion to cabbage some people keep.

Green Cabbage, halved

In this recipe, you can use, either Vegetable Stock, or Lamb Meat stock instead of water while cooking for more flavor.

Gobi Gosht – Cabbage with Lamb Meat


Cabbage/Band Gobi – 1, medium-sized, finely shredded (I prefer green cabbage than white cabbage)
Lamb meat, with bone – 600 gms, washed and cubed into bite size pieces
Red Chilli Powder – 1 tbsp
Salt – 1 tbsp
Turmeric – 1/4 tsp
Canola Oil – 1 tbsp
Yellow Onion – 2, small, finely sliced
Chopped Cilantro – 2 tbsp
Chopped green chillies – 2 tbsp

Gobi Gosht – Cabbage with Lamb Meat


1. In a pressure cooker, pour oil, and as it gets warm, add the cubed meat, sliced onion, ginger-garlic paste, red chilli powder, salt and turmeric powder. Add water to cover the meat and pressure cook until the meat is tender.
2. Add the shredded cabbage, chopped cilantro and green chillies and half cover the lid. Let it cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes approx, until the cabbage is done. Keep a check, and add a few drops of water if needed while cooking the cabbage.

  1. Hi Mona, first to comment in here, great recipe and cabbage is a nutritious vegetable with great benefits, although many people dont like it ,such recipes should inspire people to eat more of them!!

  2. Salaam Mona,
    Hows it going? I love your website, am a hyderabadi too and truly appreciate all the yummy recipes you post. I have tried quite a few and they were wonderful.

    Have a good one,

  3. Yum, I have eaten this when my friends mom made it…It’s so good!

  4. Mona, this is a very delicious recipe you’ve posted. In Azerbaijan we have a similar dish, almost the same I would say:) and I love it! I love the colors of yours a lot. I haven’t prepared the dish in a long time and you encouraged me. Thank you for posting!

  5. I was suprised at the simplicity of this one! There are also many cabbage-meat combos- some that were enjoyed by my family (Irish on one side, German on the other) as I was growing up, but I think I would have enjoyed them much more if they were only so pleasantly seasoned as yours! Homey, and very nice-looking photo Mona!

  6. Also…good idea with the cabbage!

    I have never tried lamb with cabbage. But sounds good and easy to make. Thanks for sharing the cabbage tip. I have cabbage in my fridge and I am going to shred it and freeze it in ziplock bags right away.

  11. Mona, had seen this once in mammus blog. Never tried this. Looks like a simple mutton dish.

  12. Looks delish!…. Cabbage with lamb different combination…. My mom used to add shrimp in cabbage….. Urs is a mouthwatering recipe…. Love it…

  13. I love Cabbage & Lamb,I’m going to try your recipe.
    love the idea of freezing the cabbage too 😉
    Thank you 🙂

  14. as salam alykum.
    beautiful blog Mona !!!

  15. you might wanna rub the cabbage with the 2 tablespoons of salt before putting it in the pot, instead of adding the fresh cabbage and salt separately in the pot
    also a bay leave and 7-8 whole black peppers will give a nice aroma. we add also a teaspoon of coriander seeds.
