Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. 1 kg mutton
  2. 4 tbsp mustard oil
  3. 250 ml curd
  4. 2 tsp of ground spices (mix of jeera, dhania, chilli, salt, sugar, turmeric, meat masala, garam masala)
  5. 1 tsp kasoori methi
  6. 1 tsp whole garam masala (bay leaf, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves)
  7. 1 tsp fresh paste of ginger-garlic
  8. 1 cup of onion, finely chopped
  9. 1 cup of fresh tomato puree
  10. Handful of chopped coriander for garnishing
  11. 1 tbsp raw papaya paste, along with the skin to tenderize the meat
  12. 1 cup of big cubes of fried potato (optional)


  1. Marinate the meat with curd, ginger, garlic, salt, turmeric, red chilli, jeera, dhania, kasoori methi, raw papaya paste and meat masala.
  2. Keep it in the fridge for 4 hours. In this time all the flavours will combine well and the meat will become tender.
  3. Now heat oil in a kadhai, add the whole garam masala and a little sugar. The sugar will get caramelized but don't let it burn. (This will give your gravy the brown colour.)
  4. Add the onion and a little salt and fry till it turns brown. Next, pour in the tomato puree. Sauté for a while, then add this to the marinated meat.
  5. Cover and cook in a low flame for at least 40 Minutes. Stir in between. (By now you will be able to see the oil separating.)
  6. Pour in a little water, add the potatoes and cook again for 15 minutes. Then remove the potatoes and add the garam masala powder.
  7. Pressure cook for 5 whistles or till the meat is fully cooked.
  8. Garnish it with coriander and serve.
