  6. Now open the cooker once pressure releases, add in the vegetables and cook for 1 more whistle.
  7. Now heat a deep pan with 2 teaspoon oil, temper with mustard seeds,jeera,fenugreek seeds, red chillies, garlic and curry leaves.

  9. Mix everything well and add salt as needed. Add little water if needed and bring everything to a boil in low flame. Switch off after the mutton is cooked and gravy is creamy.
  10. Serve with briyani the best combo or pulao or roti.
My Tip: Instead of masoor dal you can use toor dal or chana dal too.
