Mostly mutton chops my mom use only freshly ground pepper powder but I added extra flavours of cumin powder, ajwain and used spices like bay leaves, cinnamon stick, star anise and finally cardamon pods for the nice aroma. Actually my hubby doesn’t like mutton if it smells lot so I used to add these flavours to overcome the raw smell of mutton.

Cook mutton properly in pressure cooker for 5 whistles if not cooked properly leave some more whistles. Saute the onion, ginger garlic paste and tomatoes well in oil. Add some more oil if needs for sauteing. Once you saute well then only you get nice color and gravy. And once you add mutton pieces sauté in gravy for 5 mins so that the masala gets deeper inside and tastes good.

All non vegetarians dishes should be spicy so that the raw smell and taste is not much felt. And my hubby from namakkal usually likes only the spicy version of all non vegetarian recipes with all the Indian spices for the flavor. My mother in law always ground fresh masala to be added to all the non vegetarian recipes. Try this recipe and comment me I will be very happy to hear from you.
