Mutton Pepper Fry

I cooked this dish so specially for Diwali for my mom as she don't eat chicken and loves mutton dishes a lot. I cooked this twice in a week during Diwali as the first time mom said she couldn't get enough of the dish as we served for visitors also. This dish is so spicy and delicious, the thick gravy best eaten as it is or with pepper rasam.

Now off to the recipe;


1kg of boneless mutton
3 large onions (sliced)
1 tomato chopped small
2 sprigs of curry leaves
1 tsp of cumin seed
2 tbsp of ginger garlic paste
2 tbsp of meat curry masala
1 tbsp of coarse pepper powder
1 tbsp of chilli paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp of roasted coconut paste (kerisik)
1 cinnamon stick
3 star anise
3 cloves
1 tbsp of oil
Salt to taste
3 cups of water
A bunch of coriander leaves

I have used pressure cooker to cook mutton, clean mutton add turmeric powder, water and salt then pressure cook until 5 or 6 whistle depending on the tenderness needed. Once done drain the mutton and take out the excess fat on the meat, keep aside the mutton and save the water for later use.

In a pan, pour oil then add cinnamon stick, star anise, clove, curry leaves, cumin and fry for a minute. Then add ginger garlic paste, onion, tomato and let the tomato turn mushy. Now add mutton, meat curry masala, chilli paste, pepper powder and salt then pour 2 cups of water from boiling the mutton let all the ingredients incorporate well and the gravy reduces to half.

Once gravy reduced, add coconut paste and let gravy completely thicken. Adjust seasoning if needed and our Mutton Pepper Fry is ready to be served with a bunch of coriander leaves.

Do try and let me know how it turned out!
