Yipee, my first mutton curry recipe!! I bought some mutton the day before and was dying to make it, coz it has been so long since I had some nice mutton curry. It's at these times that I truly miss mom :(...so i tried to recreate her magic in the kitchen. When she makes mutton curry, she doesent use coconut milk, but here I added some just to make the curry even more richer than it already is. The result was truly scrumptious, no where near mom's though. So, here we are...hope u guys like this!
- 500 gms mutton, finely cubed
- 2 onions- medium, thinly sliced
- 1/4 inch piece ginger, chopped roughly
- 3 green chillies, slit through the middle
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped roughly
- 2 teaspoons red chilly powder
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- Turmeric powder- A pinch
- Garam masala (All spice powder)- 1 teaspoon
- 2 tomatoes -cut into small cubes
- 300 ml coconut milk (4 teaspoons coconut milk powder with a quarter cup hot water)
- Salt to taste
- Oil- 1 1/2 tablespoons
- Curry leaves- Garnish
- Heat oil in a pan. Once it is sufficiently hot, add the garlic, ginger and chillies and fry for a minute till they give out a nice aroma.
- Add onions and saute till they turn slightly transparent and the raw smell goes. Add a little salt to cook them faster.
- Mix the turmeric, chilly and coriander powders with 2 tablespoons water and add this to the pan. Fry for a minute till the raw smell goes. Reduce the flame slightly at this stage.
- Add the garam masala powder and fry for another minute.
- Now, add the tomatoes and mix till the tomatoes get properly mashed.
- Add the mutton pieces and cover for about 10 minutes on a low flame till the mutton pieces become slightly brown.
- Now, add the coconut milk and increase the flame till it boils properly. Then reduce the flame and let it simmer for another 40 minutes or till the mutton gets cooked.
- Garnish with curry leaves.
Tada, mutton curry is ready. Most people cook using a pressure cooker, but I prefer cooking in the pot, as I feel it tastes better. Alright, picture time..
For the more health conscious people, you can avoid adding the coconut milk and just cook it in water instead. That tastes great too. So anyways, do try this out and let me know your thoughts. This tastes great with chapathys, naan, bread and even rice. Coupled with some cucumber and curd salad, purrrfect!! God bless!
