I’ve made this zesty Indian dry mutton fry recipe many times now! It’s a staple at my apartment and everyone who tries it loves it. It’s healthy and goes perfectly with roti – but not so much with rice because this is a dry curry.
I initially found the recipe on YouTube, but it’s in Hindi, so I’ve translated it for you below.
- 500 g boneless mutton
- 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
- 1 medium tomato
- 1/2 tsp coriander powder
- 1/4 tsp garam masala
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp red chilli powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup water
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 10 curry leaves
- 3 green chillis
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- Place the mutton, ginger garlic paste, tomato, spices (only the coriander, garam masala, turmeric, and chilli powder), and salt in a pressure cooker.
- Mix the ingredients together in the pressure cooker, so the meat is coated.
- Add water to pressure cooker and cook on medium flame for 4 whistles.
- Wait for the pressure cooker to depressurise then remove the lid and boil until the liquid is nearly gone.
- Heat oil in a pan then add the curry leaves and green chillis.
- After a minute, add the mutton, then the lemon juice, and fry for 4 minutes.
It’s in Hindi, but you can watch for the cooking process. It’s quite self-explanatory.
