When film-maker Hansal Mehta, who is Gujarati, cooked a Bihari-Style Mutton Curry and it turned out spectacular, he decided to share the recipe on Instagram.

Some felt it closely resembled Champaran Mutton and were eager to try the dish out. Others joked that 'itna direction mein pura film ban jayega.'

'Mix with copious amounts of rice and eat with aloo chokha (Bihari-style aloo bharta or mash spiked with chopped onions, green chillies sauteed in mustard oil). Enjoy,' Hansal advises anyone who would like to give the recipe a shot.

Editor's Note: To make Bihari-style Aloo Chokha, boil 3 large potaotes till soft. Peel, mash, mix in 1 tsp salt and keep aside. Heat 1-2 tbsp mustard oil and fry 1 chopped onion and 2 chopped green chillies in it. Add in the potato mash and some red chilly powder, if preferred. Garnish with 1-2 tbsp chopped green dhania or coriander or cilantro.
