Mutton Dry Curry/ Mutton Varuval

Hi everyone, this is my second mutton recipe in this year. I'm not so good at cooking mutton, because we hardly eat mutton. Okay but I do need to master my skills in cooking mutton for others even if I don't eat, wow this seems like mastering an art. Cooking is an art indeed!

I have tried to make this dish a special one by adding suitable masala and voila it was so delicious and will definitely make this dish again soon. Ok now let's go to the recipe;


500g mutton pieces
3 onion sliced
1 large tomato chopped
1 sprig curry leaf
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp dry chili powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp mutton masala powder
1 tsp black pepper powder
2 cups of water
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil

Pressure cook mutton with ginger garlic paste, one onion, tomato, turmeric powder, water and salt until meat is fully cooked. Drain out mutton and keep aside, don't throw the water as we will use it later.

In another pan, pour oil add in balance onion, curry leaves saute for a couple of minutes. Then add in all the masala powders except for black pepper powder. Stir well until all mixed well, pour water and let it boil until water evaporates.

Now add in the cooked mutton to the pan above and stir well to incorporate masala with mutton. Then add black pepper powder, let the gravy thicken.Adjust salt if needed. Now our Mutton Dry Curry is ready to be served.

This mutton curry was so delicious and you won't stop with one helping......
