Kerala Mutton Peralan


Kerala Mutton Peralan

Mutton peralan is a popular recipe in North Kerala and is mutton in a dry gravy. This is spicy and delicious mutton which is relatively easy to make  but tastes exotic.This peralan recipe was little different from the peralan recipe I had tried earlier. I found this recipe in a TV show called "Taste of Ramdan" and it looked so delicious that I decided to give it a try. I brought about a little changes to the original recipe and my family enjoyed.It is a delicious accompaniment with rice or pathiri.


Ingredients
1)Mutton - 1 l/2 lb
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

2)For masala
Shallots crushed - 1 cup
Onion finely chopped - 1 meduim
Ginger and garlic finely chopped - 3-4 tsp
Whole red chilly- 3-4
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Cumin - 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam masala- 3/4 tsp
Thick coconut milk- 3/4 cup

3) For Garnish
Cashew nuts- 6-8
Sliced coconut pieces- 10-12
Raisins-  a few
Chopped coriander leaves- a hand full




Clean and cut mutton into medium sized pieces, mix with all ingredients listed under one and half up of water and cooked till meat is soft and tender. Simmer till all the water evaporates.
Heat oil in a pan( preferably coconut oil) and fry one by one coconut slices, cashews and raisins till golden brown and set aside.
In the same pan add cumin seeds, curry leaves and whole chilly and fry till there is a nice aroma. Next add garlic and ginger and saute for a minute followed by shallots and onion and saute till golden brown. Add all spice powders and masalas along with the cooked meat. Fry this for a minute and add the roasted cashews, raisins and coriander leaves. Finish it off with thick coconut milk. Reduce the flame and allow this to simmer and thicken. Serve with rice or pathiri/appam.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..

  12. The dark brown color that you have got is exactly how I like the peralan. In spite of the coconut milk it seems to have that rich color which is interesting. I always like your recipes.
