FAYE’S MUTTON CURRY
1 kg mutton (cubed)
1 large onion (sliced)
2 med. ripe tomatoes
3 green chillies
3 tblsp ginger and garlic
1 tsp whole jeera
2 cloves, cinnamon sticks, aniseeds, elachie
3 tblsp kashmiri curry powder
2 tblsp chilli powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp dhania powder
1 cup peas
Heat oil in a large pot.
Fry whole spices for a few seconds.
Add onions and brown.
Add meat, ginger and garlic and salt.
Braise for at least 15 mins.
Add spices and cook for 5 mins.
Add tomatoes, chillies and curry leaves.
Once the tomatoes have cooked add the potatoes.
Cook on medium heat and add a little water only if necessary.
I add my peas after I turn off the heat. The steam cooks it sufficiently and it retains its shape and colour.
Cook on moderate heat and there will be no need for water.
