  3. Add in tomatoes and green chillies. Cook this till tomatoes cook down and turn mushy.
  4. Add in all the spice powders and salt. Mix well with the masala. The masala should be thick and all most like a paste.

  9. Once the mutton is cooked, add the coconut paste in it and simmer for another 10 to 15 mins till oil separates on top.
  10. Add in coriander leaves and turn off the heat. Serve with rice or anything you like.
