How To Make South-Indian Style Mutton Curry


Welcome to the world of South-Indian cuisine! Today, we'll learn how to make the perfect Mutton Curry, a staple in every South-Indian household.


First, marinate the mutton with yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, turmeric, and red chili powder. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes to absorb the flavors.


In a pressure cooker, heat oil and add whole spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves. Then, add chopped onions and sauté until golden brown.


Next, add the marinated mutton and cook until it changes color. Then, add chopped tomatoes, salt, and a pinch of sugar to balance the flavors.


Now, it's time to add the star ingredient - coconut milk. This will give the curry its rich and creamy texture. Let it cook for a few minutes.


Add water and pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. Once done, let the pressure release naturally. Open the cooker and check if the mutton is cooked and tender.


If the curry is too thin, let it simmer for a few minutes to thicken. If it's too thick, add some water. Adjust the consistency according to your preference.


For the final touch, add a tempering of curry leaves, mustard seeds, and dried red chilies. This will enhance the aroma and add a burst of flavor to the curry.


Your South-Indian style Mutton Curry is now ready to be served! Enjoy it with steamed rice, appam, or dosa for a complete and delicious meal.
