How to make Dhaniwal Korma

  1. Boil water and put mutton in it, bring to a boil again and boil for a minute. Drain the water and wash the meat in cold water and keep in a strainer.
  2. Heat ghee and oil in a pressure cooker. Add cloves, green Cardamom, cinnamon and fry till cloves swell. Add blanched meat and fry it till it is well browned.
  3. Add ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute. Now add fried onion paste, cooked yogurt, salt, and Saffron. Cook till all the yogurt is used up and oil comes out.
  4. Add turmeric powder and coriander powder
  5. Fry the mutton till masala is dry and oil comes out completely.
  6. Add water to the meat and pressure cook till meat is tender taking care to just as much water as to give a thick gravy.
  7. After pressure cooking, add black pepper powder and brown Cardamom powder and boil till you have a smooth gravy.
  8. At the end, garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with naan or rice.
  9. Cooked yogurt : whisk 4 cups of yogurt and boil it in a heavy bottomed pan till it reduces to half. Stir constantly till it boils taking care not to stop till it boils.
  10. Fried onion paste :fry 4 medium onions in a karahi till they are golden and crisp. Drain them on the strainer and put them in a mixie and put some water also to make a smooth thick paste.

My Tip:

Do not use fresh curd. It should be at least a day old. If the curd is too thick add a cup of water while whisking.
