3 big onions, thinly sliced
8-10 green chillies
1 cup coriander leaves, chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4-1/2 fresh cream
salt to taste
oil as required


  1. In a pressure cooker , add the cleaned mutton pieces, turmeric powder and salt and mix well and cook till done adding 1/4 cup of water.
  2. In the meantime, heat oil in a pan and fry the sliced onions till golden brown and keep it aside.
  3. In the same oil, fry the green chillies and keep it aside.

Recipe adapted from here…




  1. Its truly amazing that a rich mutton curry can be prepared with such minimal ingredients. I am sure the taste will be excellent so I will be adding this on my to do list.

  2. This is very new to me and I have never prepared any non veg recipe without ginger-garlic paste. Looks tempting…coriander leaves would have imparted nice flavour and taste to meat in this recipe…
