Mutton Bone Marrow Curry

As I always say, we are what we eat and for the health is wealth philosophy, we of course must watch our diet. But when it comes to mutton, supposedly it is okay to surrender to temptation, maybe not always, perhaps once a month. This mutton bone marrow I bet is irresistible because it is a spicy-thick and vibrantly attractive curry and for chewing the bones while sucking out the gooey marrow. For the marrow to wriggle out, you can bang the bones on the plate or the prim and proper way is using a straw to straw it up. Also, to enjoy every bit of the bones, better to pressure cook them unless of course you use the good cuts. 

12 medium pieces of mutton bones 
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 tbsp shallot paste
1/2 tbsp garlic paste
Spices - 2 sticks cinnamon, 2 star anise, 4 cloves and 2 bay leaves
2 tbsp plain chilli powder 
1 tsp turmeric powder
(Note; mix chilli and turmeric powder with some water for a thick paste)
2 tbsp yoghurt
3 sprigs curry leaves
2 sprigs coriander leaves -shredded
2 medium size potatoes - cut into medium size pieces
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste
Pressure cooked bones with enough water.
Remove and keep aside.  
Heat oil and when heated, sauté spices.
Add ginger paste, garlic paste, shallot paste and chilli-turmeric paste.
Stir and cook till aromatic and oil splits.
Put in potatoes and curry leaves.
Season with salt. 
Pour about 1 cup of water.  
(Note: for more gravy, add more water) 
Stir and simmer to cook potatoes. 
Add bones, stir and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes. 
Off the heat and gently combine in yoghurt and coriander leaves. 
Cover with a lid and let it sit for about 1/2 hour (longer better) so that the bones would have absorbed in the curry.

  10. Nava, I haven't seen anyone eating bone marrow mutton with a straw. I have not cooked bone marrow but when ever I make mutton I use pressure cooker. Our security aid from Rajasthan always mixed turmeric and chilli powder in water before adding it to the dish, I never asked him the reason but I am sure it was for that eye catching color of the dish.
