How to make Muslim Mutton Curry

  1. Wash the Mutton nicely twice and drain out all the excess water and keep it ready for marination.
  2. Finely slice the onions, apply some salt and leave it aside for 10mins. After 10mins, squeeze out the excess water and deep fry them till golden brown. Remove on absorbent paper and keep aside
  3. Chop the tomatoes into small pieces; remove the juice of two lemons and keep aside
  4. Whisk yogurt till there are no lumps and add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder and salt. Add the chopped tomatoes, ginger garlic paste, lime juice and crushed fried onions. Check for seasoning
  5. Add the mutton pieces and 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 and bring it to room temperature
  7. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan on a medium flame and add the bay leaves, peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom and let it splutter for a minute. Pour the marinated mutton along with the marination in the pan and 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 and falling off the bone
  9. Check for seasonings and once the mutton is completely cooked and tender; garnish with chopped coriander and mint leaves.
  10. Serve hot with khaboos or soft butter pav or some steamed rice and 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.
