Mutton( goat meat) Curry/kurma/kuzhambu

Last weekend we stayed in one of my friend Selvi's place. Had a very good time, kids also enjoyed. Morning for breakfast it was dosa and side dish was sambar, coconut chutney, tomato chutney and MUTTON KURMA. My friend Senthil also had come with us, her mother prepared this dish and we just helped her.

Mutton - 1 1/2 lbs
Onion - 1 big chopped fine
Tomato - 2
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Garlic - 4 pieces
Clove - 3
Cinnamon - one peice
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
Mint leaves - 5 or 6
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Dhaniya powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Urad dhal - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Coconut - 1 cup grated

Baby goat meat has been used in this curry

Clean and cut the mutton pieces into big pieces.

Grind together:
Coconut, ginger, garlic, mint leaves, clove, cinnamon, fennel seeds to a fine paste... keep aside

Heat oil in a pressure cooker/pan and add mustard seeds, urad dhal, curry leaves... when they pop out add chopped onions and fry till golden brown... next add chopped tomatoes and fry till they are mashed and pulpy ... add the ground paste and all the powders( can subsitute with your home made curry powder)... reduce flame and fry till the raw smell leaves for about 5 minutes... next add the meat, salt ... 2 or 3 cups of water and fry again for another 5 minutes ... close the lid and cook for 2 - 3 whistles( check to see if the mutton is cooked or cook for one more whistle) ... serve with idl/dosa/ rice /aappam/ chapathis.
