At our place, chicken or fish is always compulsory. But every once in a while, we like to switch it up a bit.
This weekend, it was a simple, yet, lip-smacking mutton curry.
Mutton – 1 kg
Oil – 5 tbsp
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
Cumin seeds – 0.5 tsp
Green chillies – 2 (chopped)
Curry leaves – 6-8
Onions (medium sized) – 3 (chopped)
Shallots (small onions)– 6-8 (chopped) //optional
Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tbsp (heaped)
Coriander powder – 1 tbsp
Red chilli powder – 1 tbsp
Pepper powder – 1 tsp
Water – as required
Meat Masala Powder(I used ‘Eastern’) – 1/4 cup
Step 1: Heat some oil in a pressure cooker, and splutter some mustard seeds.
Step 2: Add in cumin seeds, green chillies, curry leaves. Saute for a minute.
Step 3: Toss in the onions, shallots and ginger-garlic paste. Cook until translucent.
Step 4: Place the mutton pieces in the cooker, along with all the masala powders. Mix well. Pour water up to the level of mutton.
Step 5: Cover and cook on high flame, up to the first whistle. Switch to low flame and cook for another 4 whistles, or until done.
