Ganphat Rai Mutton (For those who speak Hindi, hope you catch the pun intended)

Green Chilli-4-pounded
Red Chilli powder-1+1 tsp
Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
Corriander powder-2tbsp
Fenugreek seed -1tsp
Garam Masala-1tsp
Onion-1 large-Chopped fine
Tomato-2 large-chopped
Potato-1 large-Cut into pieces
Lemon juice/Vinegar-1 tbsp
Curry leaves-2 sprigs
Salt+Water+Oil-As required


Marinate the cleaned Mutton with Red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt & Lemon juice(or Vinegar) and keep it aside for 15 minutes. Now heat oil in a wok.Add curry leaves & fenugreek seeds. Once it has spluttered add Ginger,Garlic & Green chillies. Saute it till you get that fine aroma of garlic. Now add Onion. Saute it till it becomes brown. Add tomatoes. Saute it till it becomes pulpy and is cooked very well. Now add the remaining chilli powder, turmeric powder, corriander powder and garam masala. Saute it for a couple of minutes. Meanwhile cook the marinated mutton partially along with potato.

Dont add water.(I microwaved it at high for 10 minutes).

Now add the cooked Mutton& Potato along with the juices running out of it to the Masala gravy.Add sufficient water and salt.Now Cook it closed, till the whole masala covers the mutton pieces completely and reduces in quantity. Stir it occasionally to avoid sticking to the vessel. Serve it hot with the Ghee rice or along with Chappathi/Naans/Porotta.

(The curry is quite hot, so one could personalise it according to the preferences)
