Recipe for quick Mutton (lamb) curry
I love cooking, and though I have limited skills when it comes to working in the kitchen, I can still make some amazing North Indian food. Mutton curry is actually quite good for health too. So here is a quick recipe to make simple mutton curry, my all-time favourite.
Total time: 1 hour
1. 1 kg mutton (lamb) in small pieces
2. 4 raw onions, some garlic and ginger.
3. 6 table spoons of Olive oil.
4. Cumin seeds (4-5 gm)
5. 2 tomatoes and some coriander leaves.
6. Turmeric powder, and 1 table spoon of Garam Masala or Meat Masala (a mixture of Indain spices).
1. Since mutton takes considerable time to cook, first put the mutton pieces in a pressure cooker with 6 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Cook for 3 whistles.
2. After three whistles, take out the cooked mutton pieces and put them in a container along with the water from the pressure cooker.
3. Gring the raw onions, garlic and ginger into a smooth paste. Also make a smooth paste of the tomatoes in the mixer.
4. Now heat the olive oil in the pressure cooker, along with some cumin seeds.
5. Add the onion-ginger-garlic paste and cook it till the onions get a brownish tinge (5 minutes).
6. Add the tomato paste, some turmeric power and salt to taste. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes on low heat.
7. Add the mutton pieces along with the water from step 2. Add the meat masala. Cook for 10 minutes.
8. Add 1 cup of extra water, and close the pressure-cooker lid. Give it two whistles.
9. After 2 whistles, turn off the gas but don't take out the lid of the cooker yet. Let it cook in steam for 15 minutes.
10. Take off the lid, and garnish the mutton curry with some coriander leaves.
Best served with some nice hot rotis :)
