Mutton Pepper Fry




Mutton Pepper Fry

Today's recipe is a dry mutton dish which can be served with chapathi, appam or rice. I love adding pepper to non-vegetarian dishes especially mutton. This dish has vibrant flavor which you will love, the earthy spices, the spicy heat of black pepper and aroma coriander leaves .The marinated mutton is first pressure cooked and then stir fried with onions and a flavorful ground masala.  Try this recipe,you will surely love it.


Ingredients
To Pressure cook

1)Mutton - 1 lb
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp
Pepper- 1/3 tsp
Green chilly- 3
Salt to taste

To stir fry
Chopped Shallots- 1 cup
Ginger - 2 pieces ( 1 inch thick)
Garlic- 8-10 cloves
Black pepper whole- 2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 1/3 tsp
Coriander leaves- 1 cup (chopped)
Curry leaves- 2 springs
Fennel seeds- 1 1/3 tsp
Cloves- 3
Cinnamon- 1 inch piece



Clean and wash mutton pieces. Marinate with ingredients listed under (1) and keep aside for half an hour. Pressure cook this for about 15 minutes( 5 whistles). If there is excess gravy continue cooking till all the water is absorbed.
Dry roast fennel seeds, cinnamon stick, black pepper and cloves and allow to cool.Make a paste of this along with a few curry leaves,coriander leaves, ginger and garlic and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan ( I used coconut oil) and add curry leaves and then chopped shallots. Saute this till it is golden brown. Now add the ground paste and saute till the raw flavor disappears and oil separates. Add the cooked mutton and mix and coat well. Continue shallow frying for about four to five minutes in low flame till the masala is slightly browned. Garnish with few fresh curry leaves and squeeze some lemon juice before serving.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy!

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
