Mutton and Potato Stew

One fine morning I got up with a wonderful aroma of this stew which my mom was preparing, to be served along with appams. I was really excited to have this mutton stew for breakfast. I usually prepare vegetable stew, by adding all the vegetables.



My mom prepared this quickly before we got up, so that we can have hot hot appams and this stew for breakfast. This is an easy preparation and takes very little effort. Instead of mutton, this can also be made using chicken. We can also add whole spices instead of garam masala powder. To make this more spicy, just add more pepper powder or green chillies.



Ingredients:
  1. Mutton- 250 gms
  2. Salt- as per taste
  3. Turmeric Powder- 1 tsp
  4. Pepper Powder- 1 tsp
  5. Potatoes- 2 nos
  6. Onions ( chopped)- 1 no
  7. Green Chillies (slited)- 3 nos
  8. Ginger and Garlic Paste- 1 tbsp

  10. Fennel Seeds Powder- 1 tsp
  11. Oil- 1 tbsp
  12. Mustard Seeds- 1 tbsp
  13. Curry Leaves- few
  14. Salt- as per taste
  15. Coconut Milk- 1 Cup
Method:

  1. Boil the potatoes and cube them into small pieces. Keep this aside.
  2. Cook the mutton pieces along with salt, turmeric powder and pepper powder.
  3. Heat oil in a pan add the mustard and curry leaves.
  4. When they splutter, add the chopped onions and green chillies. When the onions turn translucent, add the ginger and garlic paste.
