ABOUT Pressure Cooker Mutton Curry Cooked in Mustard Oil RECIPE

I know, I know, Olive Oil is the healthiest oil available and many people these days have switched to Olive Oil or Rice Bran Oil and so on. But to speak nothing but the truth, there is no comparison of the taste of Non Vegetarian food cooked in Mustard Oil. Frankly, I have still not got used to Olive oil and usually mix olive and sunflower oil while cooking. That’s how I try to create a balance in everyday cooking. However, when it comes to cooking mutton, hands down, it has to be Grandma style. Now my Grandma must not have cooked Mutton in Pressure Cooker. But it considerably reduces cooking time and helps getting a perfectly cooked smooth and fine gravy. Another point to confess is that I never cook mutton at home. It would be my better half who wear's his Chef’s Hat while cooking mutton and I play the role of Sous-Chef and do the rest like cutting salad, cooking rice, cleaning mutton, peeling garlic and chopping coriander leaves etc. Well, this gave me a chance to finally take the picture of the mutton after being cooked.
