Laal maans (Hindi:लाल मांस )(lit. "red mutton")[3] is a type of meat dish from Rajasthan in India. It is a mutton curry prepared in a sauce of curd and hot spices such as red chillies. This dish typically is very hot and rich in garlic, the gravy may be thick or liquid and is eaten with chapatis made out of wheat (usually eaten in summers) or bajra (a millet grown in Rajasthan and eaten in the winter months).[4]

Traditionally, Lal Maans used to be made with wild game meat, such as boar or deer, chillies were used to veil the gamy odour of the meat.[5]
