Marinate the cleaned mutton pieces with ingredients listed under marination (from ginger, garlic, green chilli, curry leaves & salt) and keep for half an hour.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker & splutter whole masala (clove, cardamom & cinnamon). Add sliced onion & saute it. Add ginger & stir. When it turns brown, add Masala powders & stir. Add sliced tomatoes and mix well. Cook till tomatoes become soft. Add marinated mutton & curry leaves. Mix well.
Add 1/2 - 1 cup water & bring it to boil. Cover the cooker with the lid and put the weight on. After the first whistle on full flame, reduce the flame to low-medium and cook for 12-14 whistles. Switch off the gas and keep the cooker closed for 10-15 mins, till the pressure drops.
Open the cooker and check the doneness of the mutton. If required, pressure cook again, till mutton is tender.
Heat oil in a wide pan. Transfer the mixture from the cooker and continue cooking. If there is excess gravy, let it dry. Continue cooking till the mutton is coated nicely with the masala and gravy is dried.
Let it rest for sometime for the flavour to develop. Serve with Rice, Appam, Idiyappam etc;
The cooking time of Mutton depends on the type of Mutton used. You can store the left overs in the fridge upto 3 days.
