Last weekend was a long one (5 days) and I wanted to explore some new mutton recipes. So bought a 3 kgs “Raan” piece and got it divided into 4 portions. This was the first recipe I tried and it came out fabulously. It involved a lot of my favourite cooking activity – “Bhunno” and the end result was a perfect mix of flavours – the sugar made it mellow and the spice mix added a unique flavour. This was the first time our son enjoyed not just the curry but also mutton pieces as they were boneless! I picked up this recipe from the internet and didn’t make any changes to it. Do give it a shot folks.
500 grams Boneless mutton pieces
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp sugar
2 onions, finely chopped
6 garlic cloves, very finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
2 dried red chillies
1 inch piece cinnamon stick
150 grams yoghurt, whisked
400 ml water
Salt as per taste
3 tbsp Oil
For the Spice Powder:
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1 dried red chilli
1. In a bowl, toss the meat with the turmeric and some salt, cover and marinate in a cool place for at least 1 hour.
2. Lightly toast all the spices for the spice powder. Cool, then grind to a fine powder.
3. Heat the oil in a pan and add the sugar. When it caramelises , add the marinated meat and bhunno until it is brown . Remove to a bowl and keep aside.
4. In the same pan, add the onions, garlic, ginger, bay leaf, dried chilli and cinnamon stick and bhunno until oil comes out.
5. Add the spice powder , then add the meat and and bhunno for 10 minutes.
6. Now add yoghurt and water. Bring to boil, cover and let it simmer on low flame for 30 minutes.
7. Adjust the seasoning and serve with rice or rotis.
