Mutton Gravy | Mutton Kuzhambu Mom's Signature Recipe

I rarely make mutton recipes but my father once in a while take mutton alone. Aged persons prefer masala less n coconut less gravy, so my Mom usually make the gravy simple without adding any whole garam masala/coconut to it. Simple yet delicious kulambu to try, I made a small variation by adding coconut to thicken the gravy, here is her recipe in detail...

Mutton - 1 Lb or around 1/2 kg
Shallot or Onion - 20 or 2 Numbers
Tomato - Half or 1 (Very Small size)
Coriander Powder - 4 Tbsp
Red Chili Powder - 1-2 Tbsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2tsp
Ginger/Garlic (GG) Paste - 2tsp
Pottukadalai/Roasted gram/Dhalia - 1 Tbsp
Shredded Coconut - 1/2 Cup
Mustard, Pepper corns - For tempering (1/2 tsp each)
Curry Leaves n Coriander Leaves - Few
Water - As Needed
Oil - 2 Tbsp

  • Heat oil in a kadai add mustard seeds when oil is hot enough.
  • When mustard splutters add pepper cons,chopped onion, curry leaves, 1/4tsp salt for the onion to cook soon.
  • Add Ginger garlic paste when onion changes golden brown.
  • Add chopped tomato after attaining nice aroma from GG paste then add red chili and turmeric powder.
  • Now add medium pieces of raw meat and stir for another 5 mins in medium flame.
  • Add coriander powder and remove from heat.
  • Grind coconut and dhalia to ground paste, add the paste, mutton masala to pressure cooker.
  • Pressure cook with enough salt and water for atleast 5 hisses.
  • After the first hiss simmer the flame.
  • When pressure goes off garnish with coriander leaves and serve.
  • Best side dish for rice/roti/idli/dosa.
