Ingredients to make Laal Maas (Rajasthani Mutton Curry)

  • 1 kg mutton (with bones cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 1 1/2 cup curd
  • 5 tbsp mustard oil
  • 6 cloves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 black cardamom
  • 3 medium red onions thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tsp red chili powder (adjust as preferred)
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri chili powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste (freshly prepared)
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • chopped coriander leaves

How to make Laal Maas (Rajasthani Mutton Curry)

  1. Heat the mustard oil in a large heavy bottomed pan on high heat till it starts to smoke. Take off the heat and let it cool.
  2. Heat the mustard oil again on a medium heat and add the cloves, cardamom and bay leaves and sauté for a couple of minutes, till the spices start to crackle.
  3. Add the sliced onions to the pan and fry them on medium heat till they turn golden brown. Add the ginger garlic paste and sauté for 1 minute. Add the mutton and cook for about 10-15 minutes, till it starts to get charred on the sides.
  4. Bring the flame to low heat and add the yogurt, red chili powder, Kashmiri chili powder and turmeric. Mix well and cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. Add the minced garlic, water, salt and ghee in the final step and cover the pan to lock the steam inside and cook for about 45-50 minutes, covered on low heat, or until the meat has completely cooked through.
  6. Add some more water in between, if you desire more sauce.
  7. Garnish the cooked mutton with chopped coriander and serve with whole wheat chapatis.
