Mutton Stew


Mutton Stew is a traditional breakfast recipe of Kerala and is a great accompaniment with appam, palappam and idiyappam. It is mutton and potatoes stewed in coconut milk and flavored with whole spices. This light stew may not look very appetizing but its mild flavor and taste is a delight to the palate. I have just used potatoes and mutton, but you can also add in other veggies like carrots. You can also add Vinegar,but it is optional.


Ingredients
Mutton- 1  lb
Potato- 2 small
Onion thinly sliced- 2 medium
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Garlic- 3-4 pods
Green chilly- 7-8
Thick coconut milk- 1 cup
Thin coconut milk- 2 cup
Cinnamon- 1 stick
Clove- 4-5
Cardamon-2
Whole pepper- 8-10
Fennel seeds- 1/2 tsp
nutmeg- a pinch
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
salt to taste
Ghee- 1 tsp
oil

In a pan or a pressure cooker heat oil and add in whole garam masala ( Cinnamon, Cardamon, clove, pepper and fennel seeds) Once there is a nice aroma add in thinly sliced onions and saute for a few seconds( just sweating the onions)and add in slit green chilly, sliced ginger, garlic and saute till the raw flavor disappears. Add in mutton and potato pieces enough salt and thin coconut milk and close the lid and cook till the mutton is completely cooked. Add the thick coconut milk and nutmeg powder add allow the curry to get warm. Do not heat up too much. In a separate pan add one tsp of ghee and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add curry leaves and fry a bit. Add this on top of the curry and keep lid closed till it is ready to serve. Enjoy with appam.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
