Mangalorian Mutton Curry

Yet another mutton curry, but then this is for RCI: Karnataka, that Asha of " Foodie's Hope " is hosting. This is a mangalorian recipe, but i am not sure how authentic it is. Can you help me out here, Asha ??


1 lb - Mutton ( Goat meat ) wash and drain water
4 - Tomatoes, diced
1/2 tsp - Turmeric powder
1/4 cup - extracted tamarind water from little tamarind
1 cup - Water
Salt to taste

To roast and grind

1 - Big onion, finely sliced
1 tbsp - Poppy seeds
1/2 tsp - Cumin seeds
1 tbsp - Coriander powder
4 -5 - Dry red chilies
2 pieces - Cinnamon
4 - Cloves
1/2 cup - Fresh coconut, grated
1/2 inch piece - Ginger, grated
6 flakes - Garlic , crushed


1 ) Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and roast poppy seeds, cumin, coriander, chili, cinnamon, cloves and coconut to a light brown color on low heat. Transfer to a blender and powder. Add ginger, garlic, onion to the pan. Add little more oil and fry to a light brown color. Transfer to the blender. After cooling down, grind all these ingredients to a smooth paste with little water.

2 ) Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add meat and tomato into it. Fry meat till slightly browned. Add masala paste, turmeric, tamarind water and salt to taste. Add one cup or more water to get a thick gravy consistency.

3 ) Pressure cook the meat. After the first whistle, reduce the heat and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. Cool and open the lid.

Serve with rice.

This is soooo yummy! I wanna make this soon. Do you think I can substitute mutton with normal lamb or goat?

Pravs said...

Hi Anh : Mutton is goat meat. Goat meat is best for this curry. Some how i don't like lamb, so have not tried with lamb. Try with goat meat :)
