Mutton Masala

This is a very easy to prepare mutton masala. You can have it with either hot rice or rotis.


1. Mutton - 1 lb
2. Onion - 1 large (chopped)
3. Ginger garlic paste -  2 teaspoons
4. Chilli powder - 1 tablespoon
5. Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon
6. Salt - as needed
7. Cumin powder - 2 teaspoons
8. Coriander powder - 2 teaspoons
9. Curry leaves - few
10. Coconut oil - 1 tablespoon
11. Pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon
12. Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
13. Garam masala powder - 2 teaspoons


1. Clean and cut the mutton into bite size pieces. Mix turmeric and salt  with mutton and marinate it till all the other steps are completed.
2. In a pressure cooker, heat some oil  and add mustard seeds. Once it splutters, add few curry leaves.
3. Add chopped onions and ginger garlic paste. Saute till the onions turn pink.
4. Add all the masala powders and saute for a couple of minutes and add the marinated mutton. Add just enough water and pressure cook it for 3 -4 whistles.
5. After the pressure releases, open the cooker, see if the masala is thick enough. If it is watery, just let it cook without lid till you get the required consistency.
6. If you need a little gravy, add 1/2 a cup of coconut milk, let it cook for sometime.
