    Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 lbs mutton/meat (washed and cubed)
  • 2 tbsp Nirapara Ghee + 2 tbsp oil
  • 4-5 Shallots (finely sliced)
  • 2 tsp Nirapara ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tbsp Nirapara Kashmiri red chilli powder
  • 1- 1.5 tsp fennel powder
  • 1/2 tsp dry ginger powder
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt (whisked well)
  • 1.25 cups water
  • Pinch of saffron (optional)
  • Salt - to taste
  • A handful of chopped coriander leaves for garnish
  • 1 tbsp Nirapara Garam masala
  • Black cardamom & bay leaf

    Method Of Preparation

  • Step 1

    In a small bowl, add the Kashmiri Chilli powder, fennel seed powder and ginger powder with 1/4 cup of water and mix together.

  • Step 2

    In a heavy bottom pot, heat the ghee & oil on medium-high flame and then add the black cardamom & bay leaf to the oil.

  • Step 3

    Then add the sliced shallots and fry them on medium-low heat until they start caramelizing and turning golden brown.

  • Step 4

    Add the ginger-garlic paste and fry for a minute or two.

  • Step 5

    Then add the mutton (goat meat)/ lamb cubes and turn up the heat, brown the meat nicely.

  • Step 6

    Once the meat is browned on all sides, add the Kashmiri chilli spices we mixed with water and fry it for 2-3 mins.

  • Step 7

    Stir with whisked yoghurt, a pinch of saffron (optional) and salt to taste. Cover and let the curry simmer on a medium flame for 15 mins until the oil starts separating from the curry.

  • Step 8

    Once you see the oil starts separating, add half tbsp garam masala and add a cup of water to loosen the curry.

  • Step 9

    You can now transfer the curry to a pressure cooker (aka Instant pot) and cook on high flame for 8-10 mins, naturally releasing the pressure. Or you can lower the heat, cover the pot and allow the curry to simmer for 45-60 mins until the meat gets tender.

  • Step 10

    Check to see if the meat is tender (the bone-in the meat should be falling off the bone) & season with salt if needed. When it's melt-in-the-mouth tender, stir in the remaining garam masala powder and turn off the heat.

  • Step 11

    Garnish with a handful of chopped cilantro and serve with fragrant basmati rice or Naan.
