Mutton Curry


  • Mutton - 1 lb (cut into small cubes)
  • Potato - 1 big (cut into cubes - optional)
  • Onion - 1 medium (sliced)
  • Tomatoes - 2 (chopped)
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
  • Bay Leaf - 1 Oil - 3-4 tbsp
  • Salt -  to taste
  • Cilantro (Coriander Leaves) - for garnish
  • Curry Leaves - 1 spring

Ingredients To Grind

  • Whole Garam Masala - 1 cinnamon stick, 2 cloves, 2 cardamom, 1 star anise, kalpasi - 2
  • Fennel Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Black Peppercorns - 1 tsp
  • Coriander Seeds - 3 tbsp
  • Dry Red Chillies - 4-5
  • Grated Coconut - 4-5 tbsp
  • Poppy Seeds - 2 tsp
  • Ginger - 1.5" piece
  • Garlic - 5 cloves
  • Green Chillies - 3
  • Curry Leaves - 1 spring
  • Shallots (Sambhar Onions) - 10


  1. Wash the mutton and marinate it with salt, turmeric powder and lemon juice. 
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and add the ingredients under 'to grind' one by one. Fry for few minutes.
  3. Let it cool. Grind it to a smooth paste. (Note : - You may skip step 2 and add everything without frying too. Frying mellows down the flavors of the spices.)
  4. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and fry the sliced onions.
  5. Next add the tomatoes, bay leaf, turmeric powder and the ground masala paste.
  6. Add the mutton pieces and potato cubes. Fry everything for few minutes.
  7. Add water and salt as needed. 
  8. Cover the pressure cooker and cook for 6-7 whistles. (Note :- Each pressure cooker is different. Tender mutton cooks faster. Cook till you are satisfied with the tenderness of the mutton pieces.)
  9. After the pressure is gone, open the cooker. Garnish with fresh curry leaves and cilantro.

Just multiply the ingredients as per your requirement. You can multiply every ingredients except the whole spices. Just reduce its measurement as it can become too overpowering.

Usually while making a big batch, cook the mutton separately and the gravy separately. The gravy has to be very well cooked. Finally just boil everything together in a big vessel.
