This is a very easy and tasty mutton curry preparation... A beginner's guide to cooking mutton, I would say!!!

Mutton: 1 kg
Onions Sliced: 3 medium
Tomatoes chopped: 2
Ginger chopped: 1 tbsp
Garlic chopped: 2 tbsp
Curd: 1 cup
Turmeric powder: 3/4 tsp
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp
Mutton Masala: 3 tbsp (I use Aachi mutton masala)
Cinnamon: 1 inch piece
Cloves: 2
Cardamom: 2
Star Anise: 1
Salt and Oil: as required.

Marinate the mutton with curd, salt and turmeric and keep aside for half an hour.
In a pressure cooker, heat oil and splutter mustard.
Throw in the onions, ginger, garlic and saute till onions turn brown.
Add the mutton masala and the tomatoes and saute till the tomatoes are mashed.
Add the mutton and just enough water to cover the mutton and close the lid.
Cook for 15 minutes on high heat.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
