Mutton Cooker Roast !!

I had some mutton in the freezer and had no time to prepare an elaborate meal.Suddenly I thought of this awesome recipe I tried before.It’s very simple and easy to prepare with minimum ingredients one always have at home.Another recipe from Lakshmi Nair.With most of the cooking done in a pressure cooker,this is totally a quick fix and yes,sinfully delicious  ! Do check all mutton lovers,you have nothing to loose I assure..

1 kg mutton,cut into medium pieces
4 onions,sliced thin
1.5 tbsp ginger garlic paste
handful of shallots,crushed
4 tsp kashmiri chilly powder
3/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 cup water
2 sprig curry leaves
salt,oil as required


Heat oil in a pressure cooker and roast the sliced onion and crushed shallots till brown.Add ginger garlic paste to this and roast till the raw smell disappears.Now reduce the heat and add turmeric,chilly and garam masala powders. Sauté till the raw smell goes and then add the mutton pieces. Sauté well for five minutes and the masala gets wrapped over mutton pieces.Add salt and 1/4 cup water to this and pressure cook for fifteen minutes.After the first whistle reduce the heat to the minimum and cook.Fifteen minutes will do.Now open the lid and if there is still water in the mutton,dry it in law heat.Now the oil will be cleared on top.Shift the mutton to a non-stick kadai /cheenachatti and roast it in law heat till dark brown.Add the curry leaves.Serve hot with Appam/Roti/Chapathi/Pathiri/Rice.

    I guess you have a vengeful camera that brings out such tempting pics of the cuisine.

    Last week I started off to cook the chicken roast you posted, but at the last moment got lazy and made curry that saw me reheat and eat for five meals. But this is far too tempting , let me see.
