Its more than 2 months, this post was in draft format. Unfortunately I completely forgot to finish this post. Today I received a request from a subscriber of our’s for a mutton curry, and then only I remembered about it.

Kerala style mutton curry preparation

  1. Wash the mutton pieces well and cut it into small pieces. Wash again under running water.
  2. Drain the pieces well.
  3. Marinate the mutton pieces with chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, meat masala, salt and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat a pan / cheenachatti and add oil.
  5. Add  onions and saute it till it becomes golden brown.
  6. When onions turn golden brown,  add ginger, green chillies, garlic and saute it well.
  7. Add tomato pieces and curry leaves and stir well to get it mixed well.
  8. Lower the flame and saute it.
  9. Add the marinated mutton pieces to pan (Add 1/2 a cup of water only if you need to be as a curry).
  10. Mix well and keep it in low flame for 5-8 minutes stirring it in between.
  11. Transfer it to a pressure cooker and cook up to 3 whistles.
  12. You can apply some seasoning with curry leaves and oil if you wish.
  13. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot with Appam / Pathiri / Idiyappam etc.
