  1. In a thick bottom pan, take all the ingredients listed after the grated coconut and place it on a medium heat. Fry until the colour of the coconut turns dark brown in. Stir it continuously. Do not burn it.
  2. Turn off the heat and let it cool down. Once cooled, grind it into a fine paste by adding just a little water. Meanwhile, clean the mutton pieces.
  3. In a pressure cooker, take the oil. Once hot add the onion, ginger garlic paste, curry leaves and salt. Saute it until the onion turns tender. Now add the red chilli powder and garam masala. Give it a mix.
  4. Now add the tomatoes. Continue to cook until the tomatoes cook and disappear. Add the mutton pieces to it and about 1 cup of water. Give it a mix and cover it, let it cook it until the mutton pieces are thoroughly cooked.
  5. Once the pressure subsides, open the pressure cooker and turn on the heat. Add the ground coconut mixture to it and let it all come to a boil. Turn down the heat to low and let it cook for another 5 minutes or so.
  6. Adjust the gravy as per your need. Remove it on to a serving dish. For the garnishing, take oil in a pan. Once hot, add the shallots and curry leaves. Fry it and spread it on top of the mutton curry.
  7. Serve it with chapathi or kerala parotta
