Shahi Mutton Curry

I made mutton today in yet another style with mutton fried in a kadai. After the mutton is caramalised in kadai, we add fried onion juliens, shahi garam masala on top and then cooked in pressure cooker until its soft. The colour of the curry came out as intended. All thanks to the shahi garam masala that I prepared fresh.

Time required to cook Shahi mutton curry: 45 minutes
