Mutton Devil Curry

It's the time of the year. Yes its Christmas in another few days. Clearly a busy time for those who are celebrating. Lots to do I suppose including shopping and lets not forget about the gifts. The rest I'm sure have their own plans. Off for holidays to their favorite destinations. In or out of the country. What about me?? Nothing much for its gonna be another normal day. Of course sleep to glory, cook something simple, watch tv and maybe if I feel like, update my blog. 

Now let me bring you back to Christmas celebration. If you are entertaining, I'm sure turkey, stuffing, salad and other favorite dishes will be part of the spread. Perhaps you would like to include this devil curry. Commonly made with pork and chicken as well. Devil curry is an exotic-fiery Portuguese-Eurasian dish. Better to cook a day earlier as the curry will taste even better the following day. Paired with nasi beriyani (recipe coming up tomorrow) and with vegetable raita.
500g mutton - cut into bite sizes.
2 medium size potatoes - cut into medium size chunks
4 shallots - sliced
2-3 red chilies - cut into 2 to 3 pieces
1 large tomatoes - sliced
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar or normal vinegar
1 tbsp dark soya sauce
1/2 cup oil
Salt for taste (only if you feel you need to)

Spices/Rempah  - ground/blend to a thick paste 
1 inch ginger
5 garlic
5 shallots
1 inch galangal/lengkuas
1 tbsp coriander seeds
Dried red chilies as per taste
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp black pepper seeds
When oil is heated, sauté shallots and add in spice paste. 
Fry till aromatic and oil splits.
Add mutton, potatoes, tomato and red chilies.
Stir all together for a couple of mins.
Pour in 1/2 liter of water.
Cook till mutton and potatoes are softened.
Add vinegar and soya sauce, if needed salt.
Stir to combine in and remove from heat.
Note: if you like more gravy, add more water.
