Mutton Fry/Poriyal

What do you need

Mutton : 2 lbs ( boneless ,cut in cubes)
Small Onions : 20 no.s
Curry leaves  : a few
Red chilli powder  : 2 tsp
Jeera powder  : 1 tsp
Perunjeeragam : 1 tsp
Turmeric powder  :1/4 tsp
Pepper powder : 2 tsp
Oil : 3 tbsp
Cashews : a few ( fired) (optional)

To cook mutton  : 

Ginger garlic paste  : 2 tsp
Red chilli powder : 1 tsp
Turmeric powder : 1/4 tsp
Salt  : as needed

How you will make it

Mix  mutton along with turmeric powder, red chilli powder, ginger garlic paste and salt.Add a little water and pressure cook it until it's cooked tender. Note : I usually pressure cook all mutton pieces (both boneless and with bones )together and separate them for two different dishes.In this case I separated bone less  pieces for mutton fry and rest for a mutton gravy.

In a pan , heat oil and  saute perunjeeragam and  sliced small onion, curry leaves. Saute until onions are soft .Now add turmeric powder, red chilli powder , jeera powder and salt.Saute until raw smell is gone and add mutton pieces .Fry these on medium heat  until everything comes together and mutton pieces turn into brownish color. Finally add pepper powder and saute altogether.Switch off the heat and serve hot with rice/roti.

You can add fried cashews to make it extra special.
