Well, for a change, I'll spare you from listening to my stories, what say ;) ?
Bookmarked this recipe sometime ago and finally tried it last week. It was exactly what I expected, a spicy dish loaded with amazing flavour! I hope you will also enjoy it.
Here you go with the recipe
Recipe adapted from “The Epicure Cookbook” by Ummi Abdulla
- 500 gms Mutton (cut into small-medium size pieces)
- 2 tsp Whole black pepper
- 2 Green chilli
- 1 tbsp Ginger & garlic chopped
- 2-3 tbsp Coriander leaves chopped
- 1 tbsp Lemon juice
- 2 big Onion (sliced finely)
- 2 – 2.5 tsp Coriander powder
- 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp Garam masala
- 1/2 tsp Fennel
- 1 small – medium Tomato (sliced)
- 1 cup Water
- Curry leaves
- Oil (I used coconut oil)
- Grind together whole black pepper, green chilli, ginger, garlic and coriander leaves with 2 tbsp water to a fine paste. Add this ground masala, lemon juice and salt to cleaned mutton pieces. Marinate it for half an hour to one hour.
- Heat oil in the pressure cooker. Add sliced onions and cook till it becomes golden brown. Add all the masala powders. Mix well. Add a little water (1 tbsp) to mix everything well.
- When oil starts appearing, add tomato, salt (keep in mind that salt is already added to mutton) and curry leaves. Mix well. After 3-4 mins, add marinated mutton pieces. Mix well.
- Add 1 cup water, let it boil. Pressure cook till the mutton is done.
- If there is any gravy, continue cooking, so that the water dries up and mutton is covered with masala. Garnish with freshly ground pepper and onion rings.
- Serve it with rice, roti, pathiri etc;
This curry has a dry consistency. But I made a semi dry version. You can adjust the gravy to suit your taste. The more you roast on low flame, the more darker the mutton will be. It will be great if you can marinate mutton for 1-2 hours.

Hi maria,does this is same as chops do we add vinegar instead of tomtoes
I havent tried chops yet, so I’m not sure whether it’s the same.. If you dont want to use tomatoes, then you can use vinegar.
Nice recipe maria…..thank you….
You are welcome Somy :) Glad that you liked it. Thanks for the comment!
This is the first time I’m gonna cook mutton. It’s my hubby’s birthday next week. And he loves mutton. I don’t eat mutton. So I might not be able to check whether it’s cooked or not. Could u plz tell me how long did u cook in the pressure cooker.( how many whistles).
Thanks a ton…
The cooking time for mutton varies. I use Indian mutton, after the first whistle on full flame, I reduce it to low-medium flame and cook for 8-10 whistles. Keep it closed till pressure drops and open it.
If you want to know whether the mutton is cooked, take a piece and try to cut it with knife, if you are able to cut it easily, it’s cooked, if not cook further.
Hope your husband enjoys this dish.
Happy cooking and all the best :)
If i don’t have pressure cooker how long do i have to cook mutton?
I havent cooked mutton without pressure cooker, also it varies depending on the variety you use. However try cooking for 25 – 30 mins on low flame and see how it goes.
