About Muslim Mutton Curry

This mutton curry is my version of an easy peasy & the most delicious mutton curry one can make at home. Every time I have prepared this mutton recipe, I have been loaded with compliments. Hope you enjoy it too!

Note from BetterButter: Mutton curry is an Indian dish which originated in Bengal. It is however extremely popular across India though the methods of preparation vary across India. There is the famous Rogan Josh from Jammu and Kashmir which is a form of the mutton curry. There is off course, the Kosha Mongsho which is a Bengali style mutton curry. The mutton curry recipe in fact has travelled internationally with many countries giving it their own flavour.
Here we speak about the Muslim mutton curry by Dish Khurana. The muslim mutton curry is made unique by the flavour of yoghurt and dollops of ghee. BetterButter gives this Mutton curry recipe a big thumbs up!

Muslim Mutton Curry


  • 750gms Mutton with bones
  • 400gms Yogurt
  • 200gms Tomatoes
  • 200gms Onion
  • 3 green chillies
  • 2tbsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
  • 2 Lime
  • 1.5-2 tbsp Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder
  • 1.5 tsp Garam Masala Powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 5-6 Peppercorns
  • 1-2 Bay leaves
  • 3-4 Cardamom
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 cloves
  • 5-6 tbsp Ghee
  • Salt to taste
  • A big handful of chopped coriander
  • A handful of mint leaves


  1. Wash the Mutton nicely twice & drain out all the excess water & keep it ready for marination.
  2. Finely slice the onions, apply some salt & leave it aside for 10mins. After 10mins, squeeze out the excess water & deep fry them till golden brown. Remove on absorbent paper & keep aside
  3. Chop the tomatoes into small pieces; remove the juice of two lemons & keep aside
  4. Whisk yogurt till there are no lumps & add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder & salt. Add the chopped tomatoes, ginger garlic paste, lime juice & crushed fried onions. Check for seasoning
  5. Add the mutton pieces & mix with hands or with a spatula. Keep in the refrigerator for an overnight marination.
  6. The next morning, remove the mutton from the fridge & bring it to room temperature
  7. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan on a medium flame & add the bay leaves, peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves & cardamom & let it splutter for a minute. Pour the marinated mutton along with the marination in the pan & bring it a boil.
  8. Once it comes to a boil, let it simmer on a low flame covered for around 1-1.5 hours stirring at intervals till the mutton is tender & falling off the bone
  9. Check for seasonings & once the mutton is completely cooked & tender; garnish with chopped coriander & mint leaves.
  10. Serve hot with khaboos or soft butter pav or some steamed rice & onion salad
My Tip: Do not rush the process, slow cooking this dish lends a lovely taste & texture to the meat & body of the curry.
