Kerala Mutton Fry

Mutton my true love and my son’s first love. I had a lot of work today and by the time I set out to cook the mutton it was past 12.30. I needed a quick fix recipe plus I wanted to try something new.

So opened Google and my saved recipes, zeroed in on the Kerala Mutton Fry which I have always drooled over and set about making my version of it.

1kg mutton
1.5 tsp haldi
7 peppercorns
2 + 3 Kashmiri red chillies
2-3 sliced onions
15 sliced garlic
15 curry leaves.
2-3 slit green chillies
1″ pc grated ginger
2 tbsp coriander powder
1 tbsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
6-7 fried pieces of coconut

1. Put the mutton, salt, haldi and 2 kashmiri chillies in a cooker with enough water. Give 3 whistles and keep onnslow for 15 minutes. Open the lid and check if meat is tender. If not cook uncovered for some more time. The water does not have to be used but u can leave it to use later for rice.

2. In a pan, heat oil add the peppercorns and then add onions to fry.

3. When browned add the garlic, curry pata, chilli and grated ginger. Let it fry well till golden brown.

4. Add the masalas and little salt. Fry well.

5. Add the mutton pieces (no liquid). Mix it well with the masalas.

6. Let the mutton fry for 5-7 minutes on low flame.

7. Add the coconut pieces and mix once again. Serve hot
