Onions (thinly sliced)...1 cup
Ginger garlic paste...1.5 tbsp.
Dry grated coconut...1 tbsp.

Marinating the mutton
To the mutton, add 1/2 a teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger-garlic paste, 1/4 cup of plain unsweetened yogurt and salt to taste
mix everything thoroughly and let it marinate for 30 min at least
Boiling the mutton
add the mutton into a pressure cooker
add 1 cup of water to it
The time to tenderize the mutton would depend on the type of pressure cooker you use
it takes me around 20 to 25 minutes of cooking under pressure to get the mutton nice and tender
now set that aside
Prepping the onions
Set a pan on medium high heat and add around 2 tablespoons of oil to it
add in the onions
sprinkle some salt so the onions cook faster
stir fry the onions till they get dark brown in color, This should take ~10 min
take out the onions in a bowl and set that aside
Making masala paste
let the cashew nuts and almonds soak in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes after which you can peel the almonds
to a grinder jar add in the soaked nuts, dried shredded coconut, add around 80 percent of the fried onions, we'll use the rest of the onions later
also add in half a cup of plain unsweetened yogurt
grind all this together till it's silky smooth in texture
Putting the curry
I'm using the same pan where I fried onions
there should be ~1 tablespoon of oil left over
set that on medium low heat and add in cumin seeds, cinnamon sticks, black cardamom, green cardamoms, bay leaves, and black peppercorns
stir fry everything till it turns aromatic
now add in fresh ginger-garlic paste
and slit green chillies
and stir fry for 30 sec
add in the nut-yogurt-onion paste stir fry this paste until you feel like the paste is easily gliding on the pan and it starts to look oily
it's also going to turn slightly dark in color, This should take 5-6 min
at this point we can add in the coriander powder and the red chilli powder
mix the masalas with the paste and stir-fry for a minute
time to add in the boiled mutton along with the mutton stock
mix everything well
add salt to taste
place the lid on and let the gravy simmer. You'll know that the gravy is nicely cooked when you can see oil floating on the surface
if you don't see it yet let it cover and cook for a little longer
add in the remaining fried onions, garam masala powder, give it a quick mix, add heavy cream
mix everything really well
now lower the heat and place the lid on to let the cream melt a little
garnish with chopped coriander leaves and done!
this gravy is so rich and so tasty
I can't wait to hear if you like it!
you can enjoy this with either rice or roti or naan!
