Mutton Curry

7+

Today I am going to show you the method of mutton curry. Here I am using the very simple method of cooking for the mutton but the curry is going to be very tasty and delicious. I personally like to add potato in mutton curry, so I am using potato here. But if you doesn’t like potato then skip it. So let’s start the recipe.

Ingredients:-

Mutton – 250 gm

Potato – 1 medium size (cut into pieces)

Onion -3 medium size (roughly paste means 75% paste)

Ginger garlic paste – 2 tsp

Mutton masala – 1 ½ tsp

Turmeric – 1 tsp

Red chilli powder – 1 tsp

Garam masala – 1/2 tsp

Cumin seeds – 1/4 tsp

Mustard Oil – 3 tbsp

Salt to taste

Whole spices (garam masala) :–

Cinnamon stick – 1/2 inch

Bay leaf – 2 no

Black paper – 5 no

Cloves – 4 no

Cardamom – 2 no

For marinating the mutton:-

Nicely wash the mutton and keep in a big bowl. After that add salt 1/2 tsp, turmeric powder 1/2 tsp, mustard oil 2 tsp, curd (dahi) 1 tbsp and mix all the ingredients very well. Now cover the bowl and rest for  2 hours.

 Method:-

First half crush the whole spices. After that heat a pan on low flame add oil to it after oil became a little heat add cumin seeds, crushed whole spices, onion paste and fry them together. Fry the onion around 10-15 minutes or onion becomes golden brown in colour in low to medium flame. After onion nicely fried keep the gas on low flame and then add chilli powder and mix it with onion. Immediately add ginger garlic paste and fry this for 5 minutes in low flame. After that add turmeric powder and mix it well.

After that add mutton masala and fry all the ingredients very well for 5 – 10 minutes. If the masala leaves the sides of the pan then it is completely done. Now we add marinated mutton and potato to the masala, add salt according to taste (remember that we add 1/2 tsp salt when we marinating the mutton) and mix it very well. Here we fry the mutton for around 30-45 minutes or till the mutton completely cooked by covering the pan in low flame. We have to check and fry the mutton in a regular interval of 2-3 minutes.

How we know that mutton was cooked-

  • All moisture dissolved from the mutton.
  • Oil leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Colour of the mutton was changed.

So when the mutton was cooked 90% add 4 cup of water and mix it very well. Adding water is depends on you, if you like more gravy then add more water or vice versa. I personally like this consistency of the gravy. After adding water, give it a boil in high flame then in low flame cook it for 10-20 minutes or till the mutton was completely cooked.  Finally the mutton curry is ready to serve. Serve this delicious mutton curry with rice for better experience.
