This is an absolute easy and delicious recipe. I would recommend preparing it a day before it is to be served…..if it can last that long!
Recipe source: my mother-in-law
1 kilo mutton pieces
3 large onions
1 pod garlic slivers
5 tbsp ginger sliced
1 large potato cut into large cubes
Handful of curry leaves
1 tbsp coriander powder
2-3 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp garam masala
½ tsp turmeric powder
Handful of chopped coriander leaves
6-8 tbsp oil (don’t reduce 🙂
Wash the mutton pieces and keep on a strainer so all water runs out.
Heat oil and add onions.
When onions become translucent, add ginger, garlic and curry leaves and saute till all becomes golden brown.
Add coriander powder, chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala and stir well for few minutes.
Add mutton pieces and keep stirring on high flame for 5 minutes.
Add 5 cups boiling water and add salt and turn the flame to medium.
When mutton is half cooked, add potatoes. (Potatoes can be fried in little oil and added- this helps to prevent the potatoes from dissolving in gravy)
Cook till mutton is cooked and soft and the gravy is thick.
Add coriander leaves and stir.
Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Serve with sookha Chapathis (chapathis with no oil). Yummy.
