Quick & Spicy Mutton Curry Recipe
This Mutton curry can be made in a jiffy and tastes delicious at the same time. The ingredients are first freshly ground to a smooth paste and then mixed along with mutton pieces that is marinated for few hours and pressure cooked with sauteed tomatoes. Serve it along with laccha paratha and raita by the side.
As a kid I always wondered how mom could cook so many dishes in a jiffy. In fact I've know her to cook single handedly, with a little prep help for over 20 people. I cannot multitask when it comes to cooking, for I may forget if all the ingredients have been added or not. But for mom it was all super easy. Before I entered the world of kitchen, I always thought if it's tastier then its complicated to cook. Like this mutton semi gravy, which would be paired with some spicy rasam.
One could eat it simply with rice/rotis and if you're bored of the same combo - move over to rasam rice as you dunk into pieces of meat. A masala omelette or a homemade mixture was an extra crispy accompaniment.
All you have to do is chuck in some of the ingredients, except for meat & oil in a mixie. Blend to a fine paste, marinate the meat for an hour or if you're in a hurry simply pressure cook it.

How to make Quick & Spicy Mutton Curry Recipe
To begin making the Quick & Spicy Mutton Curry recipe, grind all the ingredients listed under masala to a fine paste.
You may either marinate the meat with masala for an hour and then cook OR follow the steps below. I personally like the marinated version as the meat catches on to the masala really well.
Heat the pressure cooker with some oil (3 to 4 tablespoon) add in the chopped tomato and cook till it turns mushy.
Next add in the meat and masala, cook till the raw smell disappears on medium simmer with constant stirring. This should take about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add in 1 to 2 cups of water, basis the consistency of gravy required. Check for spice and salt levels, adjust as per requirement.
Turn down the flame and let the meat cook for about 3 whistles or until well done.
