Nutrition: per serving



  • 1 kg Mutton
  • 100 ml Olive Oil
  • 4 Tomatoes Cut in half
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 500 ml Water
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 1 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Paste
  • 100 g Yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper
  • Ginger Julienne
  • Coriander


  • In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat until it becomes hot.
  • Add mutton and salt to the pan, then cook on high heat for 5 minutes or until the mutton changes colour.
  • Pour water into the pan, cover it with a lid, and simmer on medium heat for 45-60 minutes. This allows the mutton to cook until it is approximately 80% done and most of the water has evaporated.
  • Introduce ginger paste and garlic paste to the pan, then continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half and place them face down in the pan. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 6-8 minutes.
  • Using tongs, remove the skin from the tomatoes. Continue cooking for another 10 minutes until the oil separates—signified by a thin layer of oil on the top.
  • Add green chillies and black pepper to the pan, then cook for 5 minutes.
  • Immediately mix in the yogurt to prevent curdling, and continue cooking for 10 minutes.
  • Add julienned ginger and chopped coriander.
  • Serve the dish with homemade naan and savour the flavours!
