Mutton Fry

This fry is done by husband. Since we both work he helps me in the kitchen and he loves to watch cooking videos. When ever he has time he in on the youtube videos seeing the non-veg recipes. Here goes his recipe for mutton fry.


Mutton/Lamb 500gms/1/2 kg
Ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp
Green chillies 3
Curd 1 cup
Garam masala 1 tsp
Clove 2
Cinnamon 1 small pc
Pepper powder 1 tsp
Red chilly powder 1 tsp
Coriander powder  1 tbsp
Cumin powder 1tsp
Oil 3 tbsp
Salt to taste


Marinate mutton with salt,curd,red chilly powder,cumin powder,ginger garlic paste,coriander powder,pepper powder and garam masala powder. Let it rest for 1-2 hours.

Heat oil add all the whole garam masala. Then add the marinated mutton and green chillies. Cover and let the mutton cook in it's own gravy. Saute once a while so that the mutton doesn't sticks to the pan.

Cook until all water is dried and the gravy thickens and sticks to the mutton pieces.

Serve as a side dish with biryani or plain rice and rasam...I prefer eating with rice and rasam.
