  1. Wash and pat dry Mutton chunks and chunks of mutton fat.

  10. Once the spices emit an aroma add chopped onion and cook till the onion is translucent in color.
  11. Add both ginger and garlic paste and cook till the mixture leaves oil from the edges.
  12. Now add both the pastes followed by the spices which are 1 Tsp. Coriander Powder, 1 Tsp.Cumin Powder, remaining Red Chilli Powder, turmeric powder, and also 1 Tsp. Sugar.
  13. Cook for around 2 minutes at this stage and add marinated mutton.

  16. Adjust the salt if needed.
  17. Meanwhile, boil around 5 cups of water.
  18. Add the boiling water to the mutton after 30 minutes of cooking.
  19. Mix properly and cover with a lid.
  20. Cook for around 1.5 hours or more or till the mutton is soft.
