Mutton or goat meat is one of my favorite non vegetarian menu items as goat meat helps to burn fat, control weight and has loads of lean protein. It’s a healthier alternative to chicken.
Mutton works best for Biryani. Smaller chunks are good for making gravies and side dishes for roti or chapatis.
This recipe is a thick mutton roast recipe which can be enjoyed with rotis and even any variety rice. You can alter the consistency as you like.
1/2 kg mutton pieces
2 big onions sliced
6 small onions (chopped or crushed )
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp garam masala powder
1 tsp fennel powder (perunjeerakam)
1. In a pressure cooker, heat 4 tbsp oil and add in the sliced onions, small onions and curry leaves.
4. Add in the cleaned mutton pieces and Sauté them with the masala for 5 minutes.
5. Pour 1/2 cup water just to cover the mutton. Close the pressure cooker and cook for 5 to 6 whistles.
7. Transfer the contents to a non stick pan and Sauté at high flame to evaporate excess water.
