Easy Mutton Curry

Easy? Yes easy. Easy mutton curry and mutton curry by this Indian lady must be the Indian version right? Potentially. Of course there are other various types of mutton curries (Mutton Pepper Masala, Mutton Dalca, Mutton Kurma & Mutton Parathal) from other parts of the world or mutton curry by other races. For me personally, my mutton curry generally, as I have already told, must be the Indian me. Mutton or lamb (Lamb Burgers, Lamb Pho & Malaysian Lamb Stew) should then perhaps can be the next question? It cuts both ways for us. Mutton or lamb (Malaysian Lamb Curry Noodles & Lamb Kofta Curry), both goes. But if I am to pick one, it has to be mutton. Mutton which is a tough meat. Mutton from our Malaysian ground is tough. So? Unless you are absolutely sure the mutton you have bought can be cooked till tender without a pressure cooker, (Mutton Varuval, Pepper Mutton Curry & Masala Mutton Curry) you should go ahead. I however can't say the same unless maybe if its the minced ready made version (Mutton Keema). Today's mutton curry? As I have already said, easy me, easy you, easy everyone. Store bought curry powder and those ingredients we have it at home. Easy Mutton Curry. Nope. Nothing is compromised. It is still those spicy bold flavours mutton curry.

400g mutton - cut into bite sizes 
2 medium size potatoes - remove skin and cut into chunks
1 tbsp ginger paste 
1/2 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp onion paste 
2 tbsp meat curry powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp garam masala 
4-5 dried red chillies - cut into 3-4 pieces
2 sprigs coriander leaves - chopped
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Into a mixing bowl, add mutton, ginger, garlic, shallots, turmeric and curry powder.
Stir all together and keep aside.
When oil is heated, fry the dried chillies for 2-3 minutes.
Add mutton, stir for 5 minutes to combine all ingredients together.
Pour 1/2 liter of water and season with salt. 
Once mutton is half cooked, add potatoes and garam masala.
Stir and simmer to fully cook both - mutton and potatoes. 
Remove from heat and combine in coriander leaves.


  1. Lately I had been eating lots of mutton..

  3. Wow..that's a very vibrant and inviting dish! Making me salivate...I love mutton curry!

  4. This looks brilliant, just what I need right now!

  5. I love eating curry, and I will surely try this. But how much turmeric and curry powder should I add in this recipe?

  6. Hello!! The mutton looks yummy!!

  7. Yum... Love curry... I can just imagine how fragrant this would be:)

  11. Love mutton curry especially when eating roti telur.

  12. I like the colour of the curry. Not too red, not oily too!

  13. Simply delicious! Looking at your mutton curry makes me hungry!

  14. Wow, I can see why this is your signature dish! So much color and flavor.

  15. I usually make chicken curry coz it cooks faster but hands down! Mutton curry tastes so much better and yours turned out spectacular!

  16. It sure looks inviting. Btw whats the recipe for the meat curry powder u used? Is it a store brand / homemade?

  17. Looks great! There are so many ways of making the same dish differently, isn;t it? Like my neighbours are from Bihar - they first boil the chicken with turmeric and salt and then make masala separately and then add and cook. At my inlaws place, they make the masala first and then add mutton and cook together.
