This is a mouth-watering mutton curry made the old forgotten way. I learnt this recipe from my grandmother.

What you need

Boneless mutton chops - 1 kg

Small onions - 250 gm

Vegetable oil - 3 tbsp

Fennel seeds - 1 tbsp

Chilli powder - 3 tbsp

Rock salt - to taste

Ginger-garlic paste - 3 tbsp

Coconut milk - 2 cups

Curry leaves – a few

Lemon juice - 1 tbsp

Cooking instructions

Mix the mutton chops with chilli powder and salt and marinate for fifteen minutes.

Heat the oil in a pan. Add fennel seeds and chopped onions and sauté till it turns light brown. Now add the marinated chops and sauté till dry.

To it add two cups of coconut milk, mix well and let simmer till the mutton is fully cooked.

Now add ginger-garlic paste and cook for two minutes on a low flame.

Turn off the stove, add lemon juice and garnish with curry leaves.
