  • Pressure Cooker


  • 300 Grms Mutton
  • 20 nos Shallots/small onions
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp Coriander powder
  • 2 tsp Pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • Few curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp Ginger-garlic paste
  • Salt to taste
  • Coconut oil


  • Assemble all the needed ingredients and keep them aside.
  • Heat 4 tbsp of coconut oil in a pressure cooker and add curry leaves.
  • Once they splutter, add shallots and onions. Saute them until they turn translucent.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and saute them until the raw smell goes off.
  • Add chopped tomatoes. Saute the tomatoes until they turn mushy.
  • Then add all the spices. Saute the spices until the oil is released from them.
  • Once the masala is well cooked, add mutton and saute for a few mins. Season it with the required amount of salt.
  • Add a cup of water to cook the mutton. Close the pressure cooker and cook for 8 whistles or until the mutton is well cooked.
  • Once the pressure is released on its own, open the cooker and gently give it a mix.
  • If you still see water in the mutton roast, then saute them until the water evaporates on a high flame. But careful not to burn the mutton.
  • Once the water evaporates, serve the mutton roast hot on a plate.


  • I have made it a bit spicy but you can adjust the quantity of the spices as per your taste.
  • Adding curry leaves will enhance the mutton roast flavour, so you can add more if you have them.
  • I have skipped adding mint and coriander leaves since I added the curry leaves but you can add them if you need the flavour of those leaves.
