Rajasthani Laal Maas Recipe / Red Mutton Curry Recipe


I came across this recipe through david rocco's cooking show. I fell in love with it because of its simplicity. It calls for few simple spices and spice powders. It turns out so yummy and so beautiful to look at it as well. The bright red colour with a thin layer of ghee floating over it makes it so appetizing..



This curry is made with mutton with bones..You can also use boneless too.. It taste so yummy with pretty much anything, specially chapati, rice, curd rice, coconut rice, parota or anything your heart desire..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

  4. Something looks wrong wid ur last 2 pics. The curry color has suddenly turned red from brown. r u bullshitting us?

    ReplyDelete
  5. @AnonymousIt is because those cooking pictures are taken at night without any flash and the main presentation pics are taken in the morning. Hence the difference.

    P.S. Please avoid giving rude comments. Comment with some manners.

  8. Hi Aarthi - You are doing a wonderful job. It takes patience to capture so many pics and write articulate recipes and to do it day after day, it certainly requires appreciation.

    Please refrain from addressing those filthy comments. Just ignore.

    I just want to make sure you are appreciated.

    - Kay

  19. Have tried this one. Just to add that color and taste comes from Kashmiri Mirch and Dahi (Curd) that you use. Super delicious.

  21. Hey Arati,
    Can you add a provision in your blog to save the recipe ,say like to Bigoven or something similar..? It would be really helpful

    ReplyDelete
  22. Don't we have to add any Masala ( Garam masala or Mutton ready mix masala ) ??

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi.. What I do is,

    Use Mutton from younger animal.. Meat is more tender..
    After washing this meat, I marinate it overnight with curd and powder spices as mentioned in your recipe... I feel that the curd tenderises the meat further and let's it soak in the flavours... Result,.. Meat so tender it melts in the mouth..

  24. Those asking why the colour has turned red its because after cooking the Kashmir chili powder gives that colour to the fat / ghee making the dish appear red...
    Happens with my Pork Vindaloo too 😄
