Mutton Curry

This is actually another version or let us say, more or less similar to the Indian dish called Paneer Butter Masala.

Just a little bit of twists and adds and I got a totally yummy, creamy version with Mutton. A perfect side dish along with rice, Indian breads or Pita breads. You are likely to enjoy it !!!



For Marination:

  • 300 gms Mutton bits cleaned
  • 23 tsp Chilly powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp Coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp Meat Masala
  • 2 tsp pepper powder ( or more based on your level of spice)
  • salt

For the Gravy:

  • 2 large onions finely chopped
  • 34 dry red chilies
  • 2 medium sized garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1ginger finely chopped
  • 12 tsp Kashmiri chilly powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 can tomato puree
  • 1 can fresh cream
  • a stick of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano coarsely powdered
  • Thyme and coriander for seasoning and garnish
  • Salt as per taste.
  • Oil


Marinate the mutton bits with the ingredients mentioned and pressure cook till cooked (soft).

In a heavy bottom pan, heat some oil. Add the garlic first and flavor the oil.

When garlic gradually browns, add in the chopped onions, ginger, cinnamon stick, dry red chilies, and saute well.

When the onions are sauteed, add in the Kashmiri chilly powder and turmeric powder and mix.

Then add in the tomato puree and let it cook. ( When it starts to leave the sides of the pan)

Add in the fresh cream and stir. To this add in the cooked mutton pieces , stir and cover and simmer the flame.

Let the meat cook on low heat till soft and tender, stirring occasionally in between.

Add in the oregano, thyme and coriander and mix. Season with salt as per requirement.

Put off flame and leave it covered for a couple of minutes, for all the flavors to blend well.

Serve hot along with rice, or with breads like Garlic Naan, Rumali roti or any other Indian breads.

Too yummy and creamy to be missed !!!!
