    Your tutorials are so good especially with step by step pictures and videos. It really helps first time cooks like me.
    I am going to try this mutton curry but I do not have a pressure cooker. How do I cook the mutton?!
    How many minutes to boil? How much water? I'm cooking slightly more then 500g of mutton. It's my first time cooking mutton!
    Thank you for your help!

  8. @Anonymouswithout pressure it will take around 1 to 1.30 mins to cook in a normal. Start with 1.5 cup of water and keep adding more water if the mutton gets dry
