Nutrition: per serving



  • 1 kg Lamb
  • 3 Tomatoes
  • 4 Green Chillies
  • 100 ml Oil
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Paste
  • 1 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 500 ml Water


  • Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat until it becomes hot.
  • Once the oil reaches the desired temperature, sauté the ginger and garlic paste for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the lamb to the pan and cook on high heat for 10 minutes until the meat changes colour.
  • Pour in the water, cover the pan with a lid, and simmer over medium heat for 40-45 minutes. This will allow the mutton to cook 80% and most of the water to evaporate.
  • Slice the tomatoes in half and place them face down in the pan. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Using tongs, remove the skin from the tomatoes and gently mash them.
  • Add the green chillies, salt, and black pepper to the pan and continue cooking for 15 minutes.
  • Once the oil separates, your curry is ready.
  • Serve immediately with homemade naan bread on the side and enjoy!
