Mutton Peralan

My son hates watching Indian channels... The only programme he will watch is Adukkala on Asianet and that too only the recipe bit! (hmmm... A little chef in the making!!!!). And when the recipe bit comes, by hook or by crook, he makes sure Iam there watching it. So this is one recipe I got from there....don't remember the exact day of telecast but I remember the recipe by heart!!!! I recommend anyone reading this to try it out....it's absolutely delicious!!!!

Mutton: 1 kg
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Salt: as required.

To grind:
Garlic: 10 cloves
Ginger: 2 inch
Green chillies: 4
Shallots: 6

To Saute:
Onions: 1/4 kg diced
Chilly Powder: 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder: 3 tbsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/2 tsp
Fennel Powder: 11/2 tbsp

Marinate the mutton with turmeric powder and salt and cook it in a pressure cooker by adding 1/2 cup water.

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan and saute the ground paste till the raw smell goes.

Throw in the diced onions and brown it properly on a low flame.

Now mix in the cooked mutton along with the stock and add coriander powder, chilly powder and turmeric powder. Keep stirring. do a taste test and add required salt.

When the dish is almost dry, add the fennel powder and again mix the mutton properly.
