  12. pepper powder 1/2tbsp
  13. salt
  14. oil
  15. curry leaves


  1. Dry Fry (means no oil) the freshly grated coconut till it becomes evenly golden in colour. How much golden it becomes it enriches the colour and flavour of the dish(be careful not to burn it).
  2. Add all the masalas/ powders to the fried coconut and keep it aside.
  3. Next oil (4tbsp) fry the thin slices of coconut pieces till golden brown and keep it strained from oil. Add a pinch of salt and turmeric while frying this.
  4. To the remaining oil add sliced onion, shallots, ginger garlic paste and saute it till golden. Add sliced tomatoes and saute again.
  5. In the meanwhile grind the cocunut and masala mix to a very fine mix.
  6. Add this paste to the sautened onion and let it get hot enough to evaporate the water content and form a thick mix.
  7. Now add the mutton pieces and allow it to get coated with the onion and coconut mix.
  8. Do sauteeing for a minute or so. Transfer it to a pressure cooker. Add the needed water and salt.Put the fried coconut pieces and cook well under pressure.
  9. Take a wok pan and fry the mustard, shallots and curry leaves for garnishing
  10. When the mutton gets cooked well and turns tender ( if there is too much gravy roast it for a few minute to make it less) transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the above said and few pieces of fried cocunut slices too...
