MUTTON NILGIRI KORMA

Kormas are typically made by mutton marinating in yogurt. With other spices, it is then cooked in its own juice. This is a zesty, my all time favorite mutton recipe cooked in coriander and other rich flavours. As much you put it on low flame, its getting more tasty and delectable. First time I had this yummilicious mutton curry made by my mom, since then I am a great fan of it. Just explore it in your kitchen, you'll definitely admire this dish.

INGREDIENTS:

800 gm Mutton (goat meat), cut into medium sized pieces
200 gm Plain Yogurt (curd)
2/3 Cup Grated Coconut
100 gm Onions (thinly sliced)
50 gm Cilantro / Coriander Leaves
1&1/2" Ginger
8 Pods Garlic
5-6 Green Chillies (as per taste)
2-3 Red Chillies (as per taste)
1 tbsp Coriander Seeds (dhania)
Garam Masala (3 Green Cardamoms, 1" Cinnamon, 2-3 Cloves, 2 Mace Blade & pinch of Nutmeg)
50 gm Clarified Butter (ghee)
Salt to taste

METHOD:

Clean and wash mutton very nicely in luke-warm water. Drain water completely. Marinate mutton with beaten yogurt and set it aside for atleast 1 hour.
Dry roast garam masala for 3 minutes. Pound coarsely and keep it aside.
Grind ginger, garlic, 1/2 portion of onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, coconut, red chillies and coriander seeds together to make a smooth paste.
Heat oil in a kadai/wok. Fry onion till it turns into golden brown.
Add grinded spice paste in it and fry till spice leaves oil from sides.
Now add marinated mutton in it. Fold well. Cover and cook for 30 minutes on medium heat. Stir occassionally.
Pour mutton with gravy in a pressure cooker, add 1 cup warm water in it. Pressure cook upto 4-5 whistle or till it is tender.
Wait till pressure releases normally, open the lid now. Sprinkle pounded garam masala on the top, mix well.

Serve hot with roti, naan, paratha or rice.
