Mutton curry | Authentic goat curry preparation | Odia style mutton curry with potato and raw papaya


1. Mutton (goat) 500 grams (cut into pieces)
2. Onion, medium size 3 (2 chopped, 1 paste)
3. Ginger 3 inch size (paste)
4. Garlic 6-7 cloves (paste)
5. Dry red chili 2
6. Tomato 1/2 (diced)
7. Coriander powder 1 tbs
8. Meat masala 1 tbs
9. Turmeric powder 1/2 tbs

10. Sugar 1 tsp
11. Salt to taste
12. Mustard oil 4 tbs
13. Raw papaya (cut into wedges)
14. Potato 3 (cut into halves)
15. Cinnamon 1 tsp (powder)
16. Green cardamon 1 tsp (powder)


1. Cut the mutton to small  pieces, wash them properly and keep it aside. You can also marinade the goat with some salt, turmeric powder and lemon for 30 to 45 minutes before cooking. But if you want to cook immediately then no need to marinade.
2. Now in a pressure cooker (you can use normal wok as well, but it may take longer for the mutton to cook) take 4 tbs of mustard oil, Add 1 tsp of sugar and let it to caramelize. Adding sugar will give the curry a bright color, as this is optional you can avoid this step.
3. When the sugar is caramelized (liquifies and changes color to dark brown) add the chopped onions and fry them on medium to high flame till they become golden brown.
4. Meanwhile, in a grinder (blender) take one onion, a small piece of ginger (3 inch size), 6-7 cloves of garlic, 1/2 tomato and 2 dry red chili. Grind all the ingredients to fine paste and keep them aside.
5. When onions are fried add this paste and cook them on medium heat till the raw smell of the masala paste is gone. Make sure to stir continuously so it does not stick to the bottom, sprinkle water if needed so it does not burn.
6. When the masala is halfway cooked, add the dry spices starting with salt to taste, 1/2 tbs of turmeric powder, 1 tbs of coriander powder and 1 tbs of meat masala. Cook all the ingredients together nicely.

7. Once the masala is done add, potatoes (cut into halves) and raw papaya (cut into wedges) and cook them for couple of minutes. This step is optional, if you don't want to add the potatoes and papaya then skip this step and proceed with the next one.
8. Now add the mutton (goat) and cook with the masala for 20-30 minutes on medium flame. Try to cook without adding water, adjust the heat if needed (as mutton may release some water as well).
9. When the mutton is nicely cooked with all the masala and spices, add 1 to 2 cups of warm water (add water according to the quantity of gravy you want). Close the lid of the pressure cooker and turn the heat to low and wait for one whistle. After one whistle is done, turn off the heat and let it stand till all the pressure is released.
10. After the pressure is released, open the lid and sprinkle 1 tsp of cinnamon powder and 1 tsp of cardamon powder. Now take out the mutton and serve hot with steamed rice or chapatis. 

Thank you, eat healthy and stay healthy.
