  • 1 kg Mutton / Goat / Lamb

Gravy

  • 2 cups Small Onion
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves
  • 2 green chilli
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 3 tbsps coriander leaves
  • vinegar (optional)
  • salt

Grind

  • 11/2 tbsps ginger
  • 11/2 tbsps garlic
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsps coriander powder
  • 2 tbsps Chilly powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala

Instructions

  1. Slice small onion. In a pressure cooker, heat the oil. Add the small onion, curry leaves, salt and green chilly. Adding salt, helps the onion to get cooked fast. You can replace 1 cup of small onion with regular onion if needed.
  2. Saute the onions until it is lightly brown in color.
  3. Grind the ingredients listed under the Grind section in the ingredients list. Add 1 or 2 tbsp of water to grind it well. Add the grinded mixture and saute well in oil.
  4. Add 1 cup water and add sufficient salt. Add lime juice.  Add cleaned mutton pieces and pressure cook until mutton is done. It usually takes around 4 - 5 whistles. Onion gets mashed into the gravy, by this time.
  5. Coriander leaves is optional. Add it only if you like the coriander leaves flavor. If you need more sourness for the curry, add sufficient vinegar.
  6. Cook it for 5 - 10 minutes or until gravy has desired consistency.
  7. Enjoy with porotta, any sort of rice variants ( ghee rice, pulao, normal rice) and any Indian bread.
