Ingredients

  • 600 gms Mutton on bone
  • 1 tablespoon Raw papaya paste (with skin)
  • 2 tablespoon Magaz seeds (melon seeds)
  • 3 tablespoon Broken cashew nuts
  • 2 tablespoon Minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic paste
  • 2 tablespoon Minced mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoon Salt
  • 3-4 Dry Kashmiri red chilies
  • 2 teaspoon Ghee
  • 3-4 Tejpatta leaves (Indian Bay Leaf)

 

Spices to be Coarsely Powdered

 

 

 

  • 1 teaspoon Fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoon Pepper corns
  • 1 tablespoon Coriander seeds
  • 2 small Cinnamon sticks (dalchini)
  • 4-5 Cloves (laung)
  • 4 Green cardamoms (elaichi)

How to make Mughlai Mutton Stew

  • Coarsely powder the listed spices and keep aside
  • Mix the papaya paste, salt, minced ginger garlic, mint leaves and the coarsely powdered spices and smear onto the mutton pieces. Let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight
  • At the time of cooking, transfer the mutton mix to a pressure cooker, add tejpatta and 2 cups of water and pressure cook for 20 minutes. Cool down a bit, open the lid and simmer the stew for an hour on low heat
  • In the mean while, soak the cashew and melon seeds and make a fine paste with them. Reserve
  • After about an hour of simmering, the mutton releases its own fats and you see small droplets of fat skimming through the surface. You might need to add a little water during simmering, depending on how intense the flame is
  • Add the melon seeds and cashew paste and simmer again for 15 minutes or till the fats start skimming on the surface again
  • Heat the ghee in a separate pan and lightly fry the Kashmiri red chillies into it. This way the chillies release their flavours into the ghee. Take care not to burn the chillies as they are being fried in very low amount of ghee. This chilly flavoured ghee will provide a nice aroma to the finished stew. Pour this over the cooked stew and serve hot
