  1. Marinate the meat with turmeric, red chili powder, salt and ginger garlic paste for at least 30 minutes. The more time, the better.
  2. Finely chop the onions, definitely freshly crushed garlic and ginger for the masala part. Grind cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, cumin seeds and black peppercorn to a fine powder and keep aside.
  3. Toast the cashews in a tsp of ghee until golden and also splutter the curry leaves along with it in the end and keep both of them aside.
  4. In a pressure cooker, combine chopped tomatoes, marinated meat , ground masala powder(cinnamon, cloves, cardamom,cumin and black peppercorns) and water. Pressure cook up to 3 whistles for tender baby goat meat and switch off. Let it rest for the steam to settle.
  5. Meanwhile in a kadai, heat oil and fry the finely chopped onions and crushed ginger garlic to golden brown. Add turmeric, red chilli and coriander powder. Fry for another 10 minutes to brown them. Now open the pressure cooker and simmer the meat gravy until it becomes semi thick or until it looses all the liquid. Dump this into the onion mixture and let it shallow fry over medium flame until the gravy rolls up and stick to the meat. At this stage you can decide how dry you need, keep it longer for much crunchy and dark masala, (usually I put it under sim for 20 minutes with occasional tossing and sauteiing0 Add the tasted cashes and curry leaves to finish (last 5 minutes) and finish.
  6. Simmering for long time will fill your kitchen with mutton masala aroma and would draw people straight to the stove with a fork. It usually starts as a sampling and testing for salt etc but later will turn as an hot appetizer ultimately emptying your kadai. Try and let us know how fun it was.
