Roasted Mutton (Dry Mutton)  

If you have guests coming over and you definitely want to serve them with an unusual delight of succulent and fiery hot delicacy then this is the recipe you must try.

The extra-ordinary characteristic of this dish is that it uses the method of pounding the meat before cooking it. The purpose of pounding meat provides a smooth and even texture to the meat while also making the tissues softer and absorbent.  It helps in tenderizing the tough cuts and the hard muscles and makes it easier to chew and eat.  The uniform thickness that comes through pounding also makes it look better.

Also I have used the pressure cooker to build up the cooking in a less time consuming manner. Ingredients used here are rich and spicy in flavor and this certainly will be a novel pleasure to your taste buds.

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. Clean and wash mutton.
  2. Remove bones.( removed bones can be used for mutton soup or stock)
  3.  Slightly pound, the boneless pieces with wooden hammer.
  4. Clean garlic pods.
  5. Cut onion and tomatoes into small pieces.

Method:

  1. Put oil in the pressure cooker.
  2. Heat the oil till smoke is coming.
  3. Put clove, cumin seed and 4 flacks, of garlic, fry till garlic become light brown.
  4. Add onion and brown on high flame. (About 7-10 minutes)
  5. Add chopped tomato, ginger paste, and fry it about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Add mutton, chilly, coriander powder. Reduce to low flame.
  7. Fry mutton till liquid dries up (about half an hour).
  8. Add salt and continue to roast for another 5 minutes.
  9. Add water. Close lid and bring to full cooking pressure.
  10. Reduce to lower heat and cook for10-12 minutes.
  11. Allow cooker to cool.
  12. Place cooker on stove and allow it to dry (if some water is left).
