Mutton thoran


Mutton -1lb (boneless, cut into bite sized pieces)
Small onions - 1 cup (sliced)
Ginger garlic paste - 1tbsp
Chilli powder -2tsp
Dania powder - 1tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/2tsp
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Curry leaves - as needed
Oil - 2tbsp
salt- as needed

For grinding (into a coarse paste)

Coconut -1/4cup
Jeera - 1tsp
curry leaves - as needed


Cut mutton into bite sized pieces and clean them.Mix mutton with all the powders,salt and gg paste.Pressure cook it with just enough water for abt 4 whistles.In a pan, heat oil and fry mustard seeds, curry leaves and sliced small onions.Fry well till they are golden brown.Now Pour the cooked mutton with the juice in to this pan and cook it till the juice is completely evaporated.finally add the coconut paste and cook it till the raw smell disappears and mutton is well cooked.Serve hot with rice.

P.S : As you can see my mutton thoran has little bit gravy, as we like it that way.In traditional mutton thoran,there won't be any gravy at all.
The more shallots/small onions used, the more tasty this dish is...

Just finished knitting this sofy blanky for my friend who is expecting her baby this month...
