Mutton Curry

This is an excellent mutton curry recipe from my mother-in-law's kittie. This can be served with rice, chapathis, parathas, etc. My MIL uses perfect blend of spices and she is just a perfect cook. Whenever they visit us, she cooks perfect kerala style recipes. This is made in pressure cooker so that the mutton becomes really tender and juicy.


  1. Mutton- 1/2kg
  2. Onions(sliced)-2nos
  3. Shallots(sliced)- 9-10nos
  4. Ginger paste- 2tbsp
  5. garlic paste-2tbsp
  6. Salt- As per taste
  7. Red Chilli powder- 3tbsp
  8. Coriander powder- 4tbsp
  9. Turmeric powder- 1tsp
  10. Garam masala powder-1tbsp
  11. Water- 1/2cup
  12. Oil- 3tbsp


  1. Wash and drain mutton.
  2. Heat oil in pressure cooker and saute onions and shallots till golden brown.
  3. Now add ginger paste, garlic paste, curry leaves and salt and mix well.
  4. When it is blended well add chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and garam masala powder.
  5. Finally, add drained mutton pieces and add water. Half cup of water should be enough because while cooking mutton pieces, water would drain further from the meat.
  6. Cook until the curry turns into a semi thick gravy.


  1. Can I add potatoes to this dish? It would complement the mutton/lamb as well.

  2. Yes, You can add potatoes also.
