When the result of your labor turns out good, your motivated to do more!
So, I've been posting a few of my creations on Instagram, and a lot of you asked me for the recipe.
So here goes the recipe for my mutton curry:
So I started of by cooking 1 kg mutton (cut into small pieces) in a pressure cooker, for say about 6 whistles and kept it aside. (A lot of my method is just eyeballing and guessing, I dont have an exact measurement or time for most..)
In a separate pan I fried 450gms of cut okra in vegetable oil and set that aside.
In a another pot, I added a pinch mustard seeds and fennel into hot oil, then threw in 2 large onions (sliced thinly), and a 1 n half tablespoons of ginger-garlic paste.
Added a pinch of salt to help the onion sweat and a pinch sugar to caramelize them.
After 2 minutes, added 1 large tomato (diced) and a 100 gms of tomato paste into the mix.
Now its time for the masala.
About 4 teaspoon chilli powder
Half teaspoon turmeric
Salt to taste
2 teaspoon pepper
4 teaspoon garam masala
3 teaspoon coriander powder
and 2 table spoon easter mutton curry powder.
Saute this for 2 minutes.
Add 1 cup of chicken stock, 1 cup water, the mutton and the okra.
Let it cook for 15 minutes, and your MrJovitaGeorge special mutton curry is ready!
You can eat it with rice, or any choice of your bread. In the image above, I've shown it with Puttu. A keralite breakfast speciality that is traditionally made by steaming rice flour and desiccated coconut.
Let me know if you try this recipe out, keep in mind this is my first food post. So, give me any suggestions you have to improve my post.
Have a good meal. :)
