Pudinewala Mutton

We are regular fish eaters and also love our eggs and chicken , but mutton is something which we rarely eat. Not that we donot like it , but somehow it is not made as often as I would like to. So this weekend planned a mutton dish .

As I wanted to make some new dish with mutton , decided to surf the recipe from the net. Finally after a lot of net surfing found this recipe in Sanjeev Kapoors site.

This mint flavored  mutton dish is a very tasty dish loaded with aromatic spices which would surely make you crave for more.

This dish tastes the best if cooked on a very slow flame for a long time till mutton is absolutely soft and juicy.


Ingredients :

1/2 kg .....................mutton
2 to 3 .....................onions (finely slices)
1 small bunch...........pudina(mint leaves)
handful.....................coriander leaves
2 tbsp.....................kaju (cashewnuts)
1tbsp.........................khuskhus(poppy seeds)
6 to 7........................green chillies
1 inch........................ginger
7 to 8 ......................garlic cloves
1tsp...........................cumin seeds
1/2 tsp...................pepper
2 to 3 ....................velchi(cardamoms)
3 to 4.....................lavang(cloves)
1/2 inch ................dalchini (cinnamon)
1 tbsp...................turmeric
1/2 cup.................thick curd
salt
oil




Method :

Clean and wash the mutton and marinate it with turmeric, curd  and salt for 3 to 4 hours.
In the meanwhile heat 2 tsp oil in a pan.
Add all the spices , garlic and kaju, khuskhus one by one and saute till it gives out nice aroma.
Remove from gas and add pudina, coriander leaves, chillies and ginger to these sauteed spices.
Grind everything in a mixer.
In a non stick pan heat 2 to 3 tbsp oil and saute the slices onions till golden brown.
Now add  the marinated mutton pieces along with the marinade and saute well till the
 pieces are coated with oil.
Cook the mutton for 10 to 15 minutes till little brown.
Now add the ground paste and again saute for 5 to 10 minutes.
Put the mutton mixture in a pressure cooker and cook till the mutton is soft.
This can take 15 to 20 minutes or 5 to 6 whistles depending on your cooker.
You can also cook this without the pressure cooker in the pan but it may take longer time.
