Spicy mutton curry

This is an excellent spicy mutton curry, which can be done with coconut, or without it....which can be eaten with parathas or rice, so my recipe is basically without the coconut, to make it much easier,

  • Mutton 500 gms
  • onions 2 finely chopped(if u need more gravy u can add 1 more)
  • tomatoes 2 finely chopped
  • ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp
  • oil
  • whole spice:
  • bay leaves 2
  • cloves 4
  • cinnamon stick 1 inch
  • fennel seed 1tsp (optinal)
  • star anise 1 (optinal)
  • peppercorn 4-5

  • Spice powders
  • turmeric powder 1tsp
  • red chilli powder 2 tbsp(depending on the spice required)
  • corriander powder 2tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • curry leaves few
  • corriander leaves for garnish
Heat oil in a kadai ,add in the onions and cook till they become soft, then add in the tomatoes and cook till they mash well, make a fine paste of it and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker, and add in the whole spice and curry leaves fry for a minute, then add in the onion -tomato paste, cook for about 2 minutes, the add in the ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell disappear,then add in the mutton and xook for about 5 mins,add in all the spice powder to the mutton,cook for another 5 minutes ,then add in half a cup of water,stir well, close the lid and cook till the mutton is done, it requires atleast 4 whistles, remove from the heat and garnish with corriander leaves.
Note : if done with coconut, dry roast it and make a paste with the onion and tomatoes.
