Mutton Gosht (Spicy Mutton Curry)

Deepavali with no-show of mutton curry? Nope, impossible. Indeed, any type of mutton curry is a must for us Indians and believe me when I say that my friends also look forward to a spicy thick delicious mutton curry, of course we must include chicken curry as well (chilli mutton potato & chicken vindaloo). Okay, sure we have other traditional goodies like murukku, oma podi and  the rest (Semolina Ladoostill, mutton curry is the seller (Indian mutton currydhal mutton currysimple mutton curry and curried mutton bone marrow). Having made, well, various types of mutton curry, this stylishly named one is the latest. Basically, you can't go wrong with spices, ginger, garlic and turmeric powder (Potato Green Peas Curry, Vegetable Korma & Ghee Sambar) to remove the smell of mutton, yogurt is for the natural tanginess (Moor Kolambu). Also, you can actually make mutton curry a day ahead to volume its the tastes, thereafter warmed up the next day before the function (Ghee Almond Rice & Masala Tofu Beans).

500g mutton - cut into bite sizes
(Note: pressure cook for the tough cuts)
1/2 tbsp ginger paste
1/2 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp onion paste
2 potatoes - cut into medium size pieces
1/2 cup yoghurt - whisked
2-3 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced/shredded
1/4 cup oil
Salt for taste

For the curry paste
1 1/2 tbsp plain chilli powder (or as per taste)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
**Mix with some water for a thick paste  

Heat oil and sauté ginger, garlic and onion paste.
Add curry paste, stir and fry over low heat till aromatic and oil splits.
Add mutton and potatoes, stir and pour enough water for gravy. 
Season with salt. 
Stir and simmer to soften mutton and potatoes. 
(Note: if mutton has already been pressure cooked, add after potatoes are softened).
Off the heat and gently combine in yogurt and coriander leaves.
