Mutton Chops Curry | Mutton Recipes

Mutton chops curry goes well with rotis or chappathi. The lamb/mutton must be cooked perfectly to enjoy the taste.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes   Cooking Time: 45 minutes   Serves:4 
Recipe Category: SouthIndian / NonVegSidedish
Mutton Chops 500 grams
Shallots 1 cup, chopped
Garlic 10 pieces
Green Chilli 6 slited
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder 1 tbsp
Cumin Powder 1 tbsp
Oil 6 tbsp
Salt As Required
To grind to a fine paste:
Coconut Flakes 3 tbsp
Fennel Seeds 1 tbsp
Khus Khus 2 tsp

Method of Preparation:

1. Clean and wash with turmeric powder and set aside. Heat water enough to immerse mutton chops in a pressure cooker. Let it cook for 4-5 Whistles or until soft and tender. Switch off. Grind coconut, fennel seeds and khus khus to a fine paste with water required. Keep aside.
2. In a heavy bottomed pan, heat oil and add the chopped shallots, garlic and green chillies and saute till golden brown. Add turmeric, red chilli, cumin powder and salt.
3. Add the fine coconut paste. Let it simmer for few minutes. Add the cooked mutton pieces and the stock water. Let it cook covered for 5 minutes in medium flame and simmer until the gravy thickens and oil starts leaving the sides. 

Serve hot with rotis, chappathi or rice and enjoy the juicy lamb chops!!!

  • I have used Nei Mulazha brought in kodaikannal. The localists suggested using it in non veg curries as it adds good flavour and taste. It definitely added great flavour and the curry tasted so delicious with the flavour of ghee. 
  • This recipe is medium spicy, adjust the spice level to suit your taste.
  • If the mutton stock is not enough, add little water and let it simmer until your desired consistency.
  • You can also cook the mutton in pan along with the curry, but it takes more time to cook so I generally prefer pressure cooking the meat separately.
