Sundays is a usual scene in my kitchen….and most of the Sundays are enjoyable with a hearty Spicy Mutton Curry (मटणाचा रस्सा). So here is my take on a slightly different take on spicy mutton curry.
Goat meat /Mutton 1kg, ginger garlic paste 1tabsp, onions 2medium finely chopped, garlic crushed 7 -8 cloves.
Dry spices – turmeric 1tsp, pachkalshi masala (SKP) 4 – 5 tsp, coriander cumin powder 1 tabsp.
Vaatan (masala paste) fresh coconut grated 2tabsp, dry coconut grated 2 tabsp, red chillies dry 4/5, garam masala 1tsp, cardamom 4-5 and 2 bay leaves.
Oil 100grm, salt to taste. Coriander leaves for garnish.
In a bowl mix the dry spices – turmeric, red masala and coriander cumin powder with the mutton. Add ginger garlic paste and massage well in the meat. Set aside for a couple of hours.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan, add garlic. Saute for less than a minute and then add onions. Stir fry till it turns pink and translucent. Now add the marinated meat to it. Stir fry the meat on high flame for 5 mins till the oil separates. Add 500 morning of warm water. Season it with salt. Bring it to a boil and simmer it with lid on. Cook till tender.
Till the meat cooks we prepare the vaatan ( curry paste) . In a work heat a tabsp of oil and tamper bay leaves, cardamom and red chillis. Add fresh and dry coconut and roast for 2/3 minutes. Add garam masala. Transfer it to a mixer and grind it into a fine paste.
Add this ground paste to the mutton curry and bring it to a boil. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with Roti, Rice, Ghavan etc the choice is endless and so is the level of enjoyment.
