Among the numerous styles of cooking mutton, the simple pressure cooked home-made mutton is a favorite to my family since it always brings back the familiarity of style, taste and aroma that they always relate to.

Not to understate, the simplicity with which this recipe is cooked makes it a frequent flyer on the dining table. Garnered with rich spices and tangy whole garlic in the thick gravy, it blends beautifully with buttered flat breads/rotis or with hot steamed rice.
