Fry the contents in high flame until the colour of onion becomes reddish-brown.

Frying onion to reddish brown will give good flavor and taste to the dish.

 Once onion become reddish brown, turn the stove to low-flame and add each handful of coriander leaves and mint leaves to the pan. Stir for 10 seconds.

Stir the contents well in LOW flame for 2 minutes.

Add 1 kg of mutton pieces to the vessel with masala content.

Stir well so that mutton pieces get coated with masala evenly.

  • Pour water – half litre. Then stir well.
  • Close the vessel with a suitable lid.

When we see vapours coming out from side of lid, remove the lid, stir gently for 10 seconds.

Now, turn the flame to LOW.

Close the vessel with a lid.

Let the contents get cooked fully for another 15 minutes in LOW flame.

After 15 minutes, remove the lid. Stir a little.

Take one small piece of mutton and check if it got cooked completely by breaking it.

The mutton piece should break smoothly and easily – this indicates it got cooked well.

Grind half slice of coconut in our “Mixy Jar” along with a little of water.

Pour the coconut paste into the vessel carrying mutton + masala content.

Stir well to mix all the contents evenly.

Keep flame in high – let contents boil for 1 minute in high flame.

  • If needed, then let’s add the required amount of chilli powder or salt to enhance the taste.

Then, turn flame to LOW, let the contents boil in low flame for another 5 minutes.

Stir occasionally.

After 5 minutes, turn off the flame.
