Notes

This is a spicy recipe, so adjust the qty of spices to suit your taste.
I didnt add the pepper powder in the tempering stage, since the curry was already spicy for our preference.
Pressure cooking the mutton - After the first whistle, I reduced the flame to low-medium and cooked for 12-15 whistles. Keep it closed for another 15 mins or till the pressure drops.
The colour of the curry tends to darken as it rests..
