Peshawari Mutton Karahi

Peshawari Mutton Karahi!! From the land of Pakistan and specifically from the city of Peshawar. Already sounding mouth watering right and I bet the pictures are additionally making your tummy hunger topsy-turvy right? In fact, to tell you the truth, I myself can't contain my hunger and I think without me realizing, my saliva is gonna drip down soon. Regardless, any mutton dish for the matter most probably can trigger hunger for the both of us and I must go ahead by mentioning that I quite know it about the different kinds of mutton curries from this part and that part of the world. Furthermore, should I blow my own trumpet to how far I have come in making all sort of dishes from around the globe (Tandoori Chicken, Aam ka Achaar, Bengali Fish Croquettes, Chicken Vindaloo, Cari Poisson & Goan Prawn Curry)? Enough of me and marketing myself, let's not waste anymore time in getting down to making Peshawari Mutton Karahi. Thick, spices infused, yogurt creaminess, ghee and coriander leaves scented, plus honestly guys, blame it on my habit of adding potatoes for most of my mutton curries. Can you like possibly blame me for adding potatoes? We Malaysian Indians and we just must somehow find a reason for merging potatoes and mutton as one (Nepalese Mutton Curry, Aloo Gosht, Shahi Mutton Curry, Rogan Josh, Mutton Keema, Masala Mutton Curry & Mutton Parathal).

Khasi Ko Masu ((Nepalese Mutton Curry)

I have been searching. Searching for new recipes and just then, I couldn't help but notice the varieties of Nepalese style mutton curries. Ohhhhh! What a food joy for testing my cooking skills to Nepalese cuisine. Recipes checked through and digested, in fact, most of them sounding like the mutton curries I have already made before. To tell you the truth, I didn't really notice much difference in the ingredients. Nevertheless, I felt good I actually found out that Nepalese Mutton Curry is known as Khasi Ko Masu. Did I plagiarise those recipes? I don't think I did and like I have already told previously (Moo Gook/Korean Radish Soup), remember, I have already showcased recipes from other parts of the world (Cari Poisson/Mauritian Fish Curry, Kiri Hodi/Sri Lankan Coconut GravyMoroccan Chicken Stew, Hyderabadi Vegetable Biryani, Malabar Fish Curry, Tofu Manchurian & Goan Prawn Curry), and me having quite an experience in making mutton curries, what would have been the possibilities, you tell me? Honestly guys, I didn't feel any pressure in making Khasi Ko Masu. Yet, I decided I will stick to my style of cooking. Making the wholesome curry paste instead of adding spices individually and also for simplifying cooking by itself, and opting specifically mutton bone marrow (Mutton Bone Marrow Curry). The outcome and result? This delectable, zesty and appealing Khasi Ko Masu/Nepalese Mutton Curry (Aloo Gosht, Shahi Mutton Curry, Rogan Josh, Masala Mutton Curry, Mutton Keema & Mutton Varuval).

Aloo Gosht

When you cook mutton with potatoes, you basically get this mutton dish known as Aloo Gosht. That's it guys and potatoes by far, can we say no to? You tell me. We definitely won't reject potatoes (Aloo Gobi, Dum Aloo & Chilli Aloo). God! A favourite of ours and its somehow like a habit potatoes must go into curries, wouldn't you agree? Mutton curry and potatoes? What say you? Nothing to say right? I know (Mutton Parathal, Masala Mutton CurryMutton Dalca, Mutton KurmaPepper Mutton CurryEasy Mutton Curry, Mutton Keema & Rogan Josh). Moreover, mutton by itself? What should I say? We Indians and our love for mutton goes back to millions of years ago and till this day, no festival is complete without a mutton dish or a special occasion can take place without mutton or at least once a month, mutton dish must be our food delight? Of course. For us personally (Shahi Mutton Curry, Mutton Varuval, Indian Mutton Meatball Soup & Mutton Soup). Right. Today ladies and gentlemen, I am featuring another, obviously a mutton dish? Aloo Gosht. Like I have already told you, mutton and potatoes and for a dry style, cooked with dried chillies and spices.

Shahi Mutton Curry

Shahi Mutton Curry, or Mughlai Mutton Curry. Rich, creamy, thick and call it a royal mutton curry (Navratan Korma & Lamb Rogan Josh), Shahi Mutton Curry simply packs bags and bags of  flavours (Mutton Devil's Curry, Masala Mutton Curry & Mutton Parathal) which will wake up your taste buds almost instantly until you most probably will long for more or you just can't stop eating. Believe me. And in my house, can you imagine how it would have been after I made this really attractive and eye popping Shahi Mutton Curry? Eaten alongside Cumin Coriander Rice and Stir Fried Turmeric Cabbage. Oh my goodness! Truly a royal meal and after eating by taking our own time, we could hardly move. Then again, each time I cook mutton (Mutton SoupMutton DalcaIndian Mutton Meatball Soup & Mutton Kurma), mostly of course as a dry or thick masala based curry (Mutton Bone Marrow Curry, Easy Mutton Curry, Mutton Varuval & Mutton Keema) its the same story as well and we love it as well when we actually bite and ripe the meat out of mutton bones and then we will still continue with nibbling the bones and also helping ourselves to rice and stir fried veggie. Sounds familiar? The same thing in your house too?  Shahi Mutton Curry as I have already told you is full of spices and ghee richness, fabulous deliciousness.

Mutton Bone Marrow Curry

This thing about cooking mutton during weekends? I really can't compute why only during weekends. Maybe from back then? During my growing up years and mutton can only come into our food picture during weekends? I think so. Back then, for a poor family like mine, in fact, mutton dish is only once a month. Basically because mum had to stretch her dollars and cents. Mutton not affordable for us. Maybe that's why its like an automatic tuning till this day that I too decide on mutton dish for weekends. Potentially and possibly. On this particular weekend, I couldn't think of none except a thick, spicy and really bang-on Mutton Bone Marrow Curry (Mutton Parathal, Indian Mutton Meatball Curry, Mutton Soup & Mutton Kurma). Not really very much different within the context of ingredients as in for the rest of the mutton dishes I have cooked before (Dalcha, Mutton Keema, Pepper Mutton Curry & Mutton Varuval). Then again, what can be potentially different for an Indian mutton curry or even lamb curry (Lamb Rogan Josh & Lamb Kofta Curry) regardless where it originates from. Am I wrong? I don't think so. We just vary the spices and ingredients to our taste or for fitting mutton as another Indian dish style (Mutton Pepper Masala & Easy Mutton Curry)? Mutton Bone Marrow Curry? Wouldn't you agree is an absolute winning temptation? Just so inviting and packing major punches of Indian quintessential bold tastes?

Devil's Curry

Another devil listing? Another devil dish? Obviously. Can you still recall my previous two devils (Chicken Devil Curry & Devilled Prawns)? I hope you can still remember. Otherwise, flip over to the recipes. I think you should before you jump the gun, thinking that this Devil's Curry is gonna be the same. No. It is not I must assure you. But still, from the same Eurasian and Portuguese family. Sort of similar (Mee Siam, Egg Vindaloo, Nasi Lemak Sambal Udang & Asam Pedas Ikan Bawal). For this round of Devil's Curry, I opted for mutton (Easy Mutton Curry). Of course, the choice is yours. Between lamb (Lamb Kofta Curry), between pork, chicken, beef and prawns. Not sure if we can use fish unless you have tried or you are willing to try (Belacan Fish Sambal)? What else should I say? Pretty much chilli based (Chilli Lime Fish, Sambal Sotong, Spicy Noodles & Grilled Spicy Prawns) and a combination of spices and herbs and vinegar, as well as dark soy sauce and black pepper (Black Pepper Crab) for the lovable and finger licking goodness of this Devil's Curry (Curry Chicken Noodle).

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.

Mutton Pepper Masala

Mutton Keema, Masala Mutton Curry, Mutton Kurma, Mutton Dalca, Pepper Mutton Curry, Mutton Parathal & Mutton Varuval. Says its all, isn't it? Our love, our Indian love for mutton? Of course. Obviously. Mutton loved to its core and I, mind you have already exhausted my avenue for the standard mutton dishes. All of it already repeated I don't know how many times before I decided I should invent a new dish. Pepper being the main highlight for this Mutton Pepper Masala, a dry style, mint for aroma and minty zesty, and like I have already said before, potatoes by far will swim into a mutton or even a lamb dish (Lamb Pho). Oh yes, yogurt tipped in as well for the natural burst of creaminess and tanginess.

Mutton Varuval

In throne mutton again. See I told you? You can't possibly separate mutton from Indians like us (Mutton Parathal, Pepper Mutton Curry, Indian Mutton Meatball Soup & Mutton Soup)? No, you can't. I am okay, but my other half-half? He is out rightly a mutton lover. So? Instead of repeating the same mutton dish, I try to coin new dishes (Mutton Dalca, Mutton Kurma, Masala Mutton Curry & Mutton Keema). Mutton Varuval of course obviously is a dry style and believe me, there's various ways and various styles according to your preference. Mine version is a twist. A twist in the sense that I added dark soy sauce and almond powder. Of course, almond powder or even paste can be replaced by cashew nuts or kas-kas, if you want to. But the end result will still be succulent mutton coated in a dry style spicy gravy and scented by coriander leaves (Vegetarian Mutton Varuval).

Lamb Pho/Vietnamese Noodle Soup

Who said you can't? Who said you must made pho only from beef, pork or even chicken? Not me. After all? We all are not the lovers of the same meat (Penang Hokkien Mee & Home Made Curry Mee)? Like they say, one man's or woman's meat is another man's or woman's poison? We for a fact don't eat beef and  option had to be lamb. Lamb Pho. Pretty much a similar cooking technic as for the millions of recipes. Make the broth, followed by pouring broth with mutton into the bowl of noodles, and crispy fried garlic, coriander leaves and spring onion garnished.

Mutton Keema

Mutton Keema? We must have made, at least once or maybe hundreds over times? Pretty much. Otherwise? What am here for? Here''s to the recipe for this like a selling point mutton dish and mutton by itself for us Indians (Mutton ParathalMasala Mutton CurryDalca and Mutton Kurma & Indian Mutton Meatball Soup)? No, no. I am saying anything.  How do you save your time in making Mutton Keema. Buy minced mutton instead of doing the mincing yourself. Thereafter? Minced mutton cooked alongside potatoes and the customary Indian ingredients. Mutton Keema. Pow-Wow!

Mutton Peratal

Mutton Peratal? Tell me about it? Always a pleasure right? I know. In my house, such a mutton dish is always a fancy frilly food diviners. Mutton by itself is a favourite, and when elevated alongside spices and all things nice and aromatic ingredients? Mouth packing, tummy filling and hand licking deliciousness. Of course a good heapful of potatoes is also like a must for mutton dishes? Say all you want, I personally believe that there's something about adding potatoes into mutton curries. These two ingredients, mutton and potatoes do bond and jive with each other for building Indian curry magical connection. And Mutton Peratal, trust me, tastes pretty much tastier when warmed up for next day's meal. Oh, if you like mutton peratal to be really dry, cook longer till gravy really thickens up. We on the other hand? We still prefer some gravy soaking up mutton.
