Hmm... I know I ve not yet served all those mutton lovers thru my blog; sorry guys..I was thinking; which mutton dish would be a perfect opener... and mutton pepper fry came to my mind within a fraction of a sec  and I love making this one..very spicy n mouth-watering indeed! You jus wont b able to stop eating..Hence, try this out today itself..

Ingredients :

Boneless mutton : 1 kg
Onion : 1 finely sliced
Curry leaves : 1 sprig
Green chillies : 12 nos.
Ginger : 2 inch piece
Garlic : 15 pods
Shallots : 20 nos.
Chilly powder : 3 heaped tspns
Turmeric powder : 1/2 tspn
Coriander powder : 2 tspns
Fennel seed powder : 2 tspns
Garam masala : 1/2 tspn
Pepper powder : 1 tspn
Coconut oil : 3 tbspn
Salt : as required
Coriander leaves : a bunch
  • Clean n wash mutton n cut it into small pieces. Drain water n keep aside.
  • Coarsely grind shallots, ginger, garlic and 9 green chillies n marinate the mutton with 3/4th the amount. 
  • Mix turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder and fennel seeds powder with a little water to make a paste and apply on mutton evenly. 
  • Add required salt and bring to cook in a pressure cooker. Need not add water since the water in mutton would be enough to get it cooked. Cook under low flame for about half an hour. Keep aside to cool.
Note : If the meat is tender, you may require to cook for 20 mins only. If it is not, you can make it tender by adding a tspn of vinegar to it before cooking. 
  • Take a heavy bottomed wok or kadai and heat 1 1/2 tbspn oil in it. Once hot, put the ginger-garlic-shallots-green chilly paste into it and saute till the raw smell goes off. 
  • Add curry leaves, 2 slit green chillies and finely sliced onions; saute till golden brown. Now, add the whole contents from the cooker along with mutton stock (water remaining after cooked). Check taste; add salt if required.
  • Keep on sauteing, pouring oil through sides occasionally under low flame. Saute till its completely dry n roasted. 
  • Sprinkle pepper powder and garam masala and mix well. Add the remaining green chilly slit into 4 pieces. You may add coriander leaves to garnish if you like coriander leaves. Thats it!
Note : This is very spicy; if you wish it to be less spicier, you may reduce the amount of chilly or pepper powder.

I ve got one tip for u to make this dish more tastier;add fried coconut pieces onto this and you wud definitely luv it!
