Mutton Saagwala


Today made this lovely Saagwaala Mutton . Spinach and Methi leaves impart a wonderful flavor to the mutton pieces . You can marinate well in advance if you have enough time in hand . This not only makes the mutton tender but the flavor of the marinade is completely absorbed by the pieces . This yummy dish goes equally well with naan or pulav .







Ingredients :


1/2 kg ........................mutton pieces ( lamb)
2 bunches .....................spinach
1 cup ..........................fresh methi leaves ( 1 tbsp dry kasuri methi will do)
4 tbsp..........................ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp..........................green chilly paste
1 tbsp.........................turmeric powder
2 tsbp.........................garam masala ( nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, cumin, pepper )
2 big ..........................onions chopped
4 tbsp.........................oil
salt



Method :


Clean wash and cut the lamb pieces into medium size.

Clean the spinach and use the leaves as well as stems if tender.

Pick the methi if using a fresh bunch.

If using dry kasuri methi wash it thoroughly to remove any unwanted particles.

Now marinate mutton with both the pastes , salt and all dry masalas for 2 to 3 hours.

Pressure cook it for 25 to 30 minutes or till well cooked and soft.

Also boil spinach and methi in just enough boiling water for only 5 minutes .

Drain and retain the water in which you boil spinach.

Grind spinach and methi and keep aside.

In a pan heat oil and stir fry onions till golden .

Add cooked mutton and saute till water evaporates and oil is separated.

Take out the mutton in a bowl.

Now in a same pan saute ground spinach again till almost dry and oil starts separating.

Now add mutton and just little spinach water if needed.

Cook well and serve hot along with onions and lemon wedges.









Tip :


Heat the coal directly on the gas flame till read hot .

In a small steel bowl keep this hot coal in a small steel bowl .

Keep this bowl in the vesssel having mutton.

Pour a tbsp of oil on it and immediately cover the lid tightly.

This imparts a lovely tandoori aroma to the dish .
