All set for Easter? Menu decided? I wanted to post a dessert recipe, a pudding recipe to be specific, as an Easter post. Couldn’t find the recipe which I was looking for, ended up with another dessert recipe, which turned out to be a disaster :(. So long story short, mutton got lucky today and here it is :)
It’s a pretty basic recipe but turned out to be nice and too easy to make. No long list of ingredients and less time too. Something which I loved about it, after my dessert experiment proving to be costly in terms of time & effort.
Since you are busy with Easter preparations, am not taking much of your time. Going straight to the recipe, but before that…
We wish you and your loved ones a Blessed Easter! May the risen Lord shower his blessings upon you and your family!
This is an old pic…It brings me memories of Easter celebrations back home. Thought I will share it with you :)
Here is the recipe:
- Mutton – 1 kg (cut into med size pieces)
- Onion – 4, finely sliced
- Ginger & garlic paste – 3 tsp, each
Crushed small onion – 6
- Red chilly powder – 1- 1 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder – 3/4 tsp
Garam masala – 1- 1 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder (perumjeerakam podichathu) – 1/2 – 1 tsp
- Water – 1/4-1/2 cup
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add finely sliced onions. Saute till it becomes golden brown colour. Add ginger & garlic paste & crushed small onion & curry leaves. Fry for a few minutes. Mix the masala powders with a little oil or water and add to the curry. When the raw smell of masala is gone & oils starts appearing, add cleaned mutton pieces and salt. Mix well & saute for 5 minutes. Add water & cover and cook till the mutton is done.
If there is excess water, let it evaporate completely. Transfer the curry to a non stick pan and cook on low flame till it is roasted well. (If your pressure cooker is non stick, you can do this process in the cooker itself.)
Serve with rice/roti/appam.
Note: I used Kashmiri chilly powder & coconut oil.
