Green Mutton Masala

Ingredients to make Green Mutton Masala

  • 750 gms mutton, washed and drained
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup shallots, chopped
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • For Garnish:
  • Curry, coriander and Mint leaves
  • For paste:
  • 4 tbsp yogurt
  • 1/2 bunch coriander leaves
  • 1/3 bunch mint leaves
  • 1 heaped tbsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 3 green chillies
  • 1 inch pc ginger
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 piece cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tbsp black pepper powder
  • salt to taste

How to make Green Mutton Masala

  1. Combine all ingredients “for paste” in a blender and blend into a smooth paste.
  2. Add it to the mutton and marinate it for at least 1/2 an hour. The more it is left to marinate, the better.
  3. Heat your pressure cooker. Add the oil to heat. Saute shallots and onions till soft.
  4. Add the tomatoes and saute till mashed. Now add the mutton along with all the marinade. Check the salt.
  5. Close and cook till the mutton gets done, 3 whistles on a high flame and 15 minutes on simmer. Allow the pressure to release by itself.
  6. Add the curry leaves, coriander and mint leaves. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm with parathas or rice.

My Tip:

Try to cook on a stove top instead of pressure cooker, though I made it in the latter. The mutton becomes so soft that if you overcook, you would have a mutton porridge.
