  • Pressure Cooker



  • 350 grms Mutton
  • 2 Large Onions (thinly sliced)
  • 2 Tomatoes (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tbsp Ginger - garlic paste
  • 1 bowl Coconut paste
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tbsp Mutton Masala powder (Store bought)
  • ½ tbsp Garam Masala Powder
  • 2 tbsp Thick unsour curd
  • Handful of coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 tbsp Coconut oil for cooking
  • 1 tbsp Ghee


  • 1 cup Grated coconut
  • 2 tbsp Coriander powder
  • 4 Dried red chillies



  • Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan and add red chillies. Roast them for a few mins.
  • Then add grated coconut. Roast it until the coconut turns light golden brown on a low flame.
  • Next, add coriander powder and roast it for a min. Keep all the ingredients aside and allow them to come to room temperature.
  • Then grind it to a smooth paste and keep it aside.


  • Heat oil and ghee in a pressure cooker. Add chopped onions and saute them until they turn light golden brown.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and saute them until the raw smell goes off.
  • Add in tomatoes. Saute until they turn mushy.
  • Add in curd and coriander leaves. Saute them for two mins.
  • Add spice powders and saute them until the raw smell goes off.
  • Add washed mutton pieces and saute for a few mins. Season it with the required amount of salt.
  • Add coconut paste and the necessary amount of water to get gravy consistency.
  • Close the pressure cooker and cook for at least 6 to 8 whistles as per the choice of your mutton.
  • Once the pressure is released, open the cooker and gently give it a mix.
  • Serve hot.


  • I have made it a bit spicy but you can adjust the spiciness according to your taste buds.
  • Once opened the pressure cooker, check whether the mutton is cooked or not. If not, close the pressure cooker and cook until the meat cooks well.
  • You can also use coconut milk instead of coconut paste. There you just add red chilli powder and coriander powder directly to the mutton.
