மட்டன் குழம்பு / Mutton Kulambu / Mutton Gravy / Lamb Cooked in a Spicy Gravy



One of the most requested recipe in YUMMY TUMMY is a proper mutton kulambu. I have been getting request for that from so many viewers. Last week I decided to give it a try. I made for my sister and we had a awesome lunch. 

I pressure cooked mutton pieces with all the spices and a thick masala, this made the mutton so meltingly tender. If you have got a little time, let the gravy sit for a while so that the flavours will meld together and taste even more delicious..I served it with plain'ol rice, but this taste equally delicious with aapam, idiappam, roti and paratha. 




I hope you will love it and tell me how it turned out for you.

Ingredients:

Mutton pieces - 1/2 kg

For Marination :
Onion - 1 large chopped
Tomato-2 large chopped
Turmeric powder / Manjal podi - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder / Malli podi - 1 tblspn
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder / Jeerka podi - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

For Grinding:
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Fennel Seeds / Sombu / Saunf - 1 tblspn

For Base of the Curry:
Onion - 1 large sliced thinly
Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tblspn
Green Chilli - 2 slit
Curry leaves - 1 spring
Turmeric powder / Manjal podi - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder / Malli podi - 1 tblspn
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder / Jeerka podi - 1/2 tsp

Method:

First step is to cook the mutton. Take all the ingrediants given for marination in a blender and make into a fine puree.

Pour this over the mutton pieces and marinate it for a hour.

Now take this in a pressure cooker and cook it for 5-6 whistle and simmer it for 15 mins. Switch off the flame and let the pressure go all by itself. Now open the pressure cooker and set it aside.

Next step is to take coconut and fennel seeds in a blender and make into a very smooth paste by adding some water. Set this aside too.

Now make the base for the gravy. Heat a large wide open pan on medium heat.

Add oil in that and throw in some curry leaves. Let it sizzle for few seconds.

Now add in onions and green chilli and saute this till they turn golden brown.

Now add in all the spice powders and mix well.

Now pour the cooked mutton along with an sauce left in it and mix well.

Pour some water according to the consistency which you need. Add salt if needed.

Now add in the ground coconut masala and mix well.

Bring it to boil and cover it with a lid.

Simmer the flame and cook it for 20-30 mins on a low flame.

Switch off the flame and serve it with rice.
