Simple and spicy recipe for Mutton Curry that the whole family will love. Serve with rice, sliced banana, diced cucumber, a dollop of double thick plain yoghurt and coriander.


1.5kg Mutton
1 onion, finely sliced
4 Tbs Medium masala
1 tsp garlic and ginger, paste
2 cloves
2 Elachi
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp Jeera/cumin powder
3 Tbs oil
2 Tbs Mayo
3 Medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
Salt to taste
Curry leaves

How to make mutton curry 

Cut meat into cubes, wash and drain meat of excess water.

In a bowl, marinade meat with the masala and salt; mix well, ensuring each piece is covered.

Add mayonnaise and spices (cloves, elachi, cumin powder, and cinnamon stick) to the meat; mix all ingredients well into the meat and cover and set aside.

Heat oil in a large pot on a high temperature.

Add finely sliced onion.

Braise until the onions become transparent.

Add the ginger and garlic paste and stir to avoid burning.

Add the meat and stir; ensuring each piece of meat is well coated with onion, garlic, ginger and masala mixture.

Braise meat for 4 – 6 minutes in masala.

Turn the temperature down to a medium heat. Add a little boiled water (just covering the meat) and simmer; if there is water in the pot from the meat you do not need to add water.

Allow the curry to simmer until the meat is almost soft then add in the potatoes, you will probably need to add a little more boiled water again (just covering the mixture) to allow the potatoes to cook.

Continue braising until the potatoes are cooked and soft and gravy has thickened.

Turn off stove and garnish with coriander.

Serve hot with rice, roti, naan or bread. Sambals, carrot salad, pickles, cucumber, yoghurt, and salad.
