Mutton Curry

I hardly cook mutton for lunch or dinner because it is said that mutton increases the chances of getting high blood pressure, once in a while won't do any harm I guess. I have prepared Mutton Curry for lunch and it finger licking good, let's check how I made this.


1kg mutton (boneless)
2 tbsp oil
2 onion sliced
2 tomatoes chopped
2 potatoes (cut into wedges)
1 1/2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
3 pcs candle nuts
2 cinnamon stick
3 cardamom
3 cloves
2 star anise
2 bay leaves
2 sprigs curry leaves
2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp ground black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 cup of water
Coriander leaves
Salt to taste

Wash and clean mutton keep aside, blend candle nuts with 1 tomato.

In pressure cooker, pour oil add cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, star anise, fennel seeds, cumin seeds and bay leaves saute for a minute. Now add in onion, tomato and candle nut paste which we have blended earlier and add salt, fry for a couple of minutes.

After that, add in ginger garlic paste, chili powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder and stir in well for 5 to 6 minutes. Then add mutton pieces and a cup of water, add in curry leaves and ground black pepper and close lid, until the mutton is perfectly cooked. I have added potatoes to make the curry thicker, you can potato when mutton is 3/4 cooked.

Our Mutton Curry is now ready to be served, garnish with coriander leaves. Do try and let me know how it turned out.
