Spicy mutton fry

Hello everyone..sorry for the long gap....I lost my camera charger and couldn't get the pictures of all my cooking:( Finally I found that in my son's toy box and ta I am blogging.

I remember the Sunday mornings I used to go to the meat shop with my mom(I used to be a vegetarian those days). It used to be too crowded, people in a hurry to get the meat and go. We would return home with the meat and my mom would start it used to be always a late lunch for us on Sunday afternoon. But now I get the meat the previous night and cook them the next day:) This is one simple mutton fry which taste great which can be served as a side dish for rice. We had them along with zucchini and green beans sambhar. Definitely try this out and tell me how was it.


1 lb mutton, washed cut into small pieces
1 cup of thinly sliced onions
2 green chillies slit lengthwise
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder(adjust according to your taste)
1/4 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp pepper powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp oil(I use less oil but you can increase the amount if you want)
salt to taste

Pressure cook the mutton for 4 or 5 whistles along with 2 cups of water, turmeric powder, salt, 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste, pepper, cumin powder and coriander powder. In a separate pan, heat the oil and when the oil is hot enough add the fennel seeds. Then add the onions and green chillies and cook them till the onions turn golden. Then add the ginger garlic paste and saute for another 3 minutes. Now add the cooked mutton pieces along with the water(in which it was cooked) and add the chilli powder and garam masala. Cook till all the water evaporates and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
