  • Soak chana dal for 2 hours and pressure cook it for 3whistles and keep it aside.
  • Cut the mutton into small pieces and clean it once with water thoroughly and marinate it with chilli powder,turmeric,salt and GGP for minimum of half an hour
  • Make a masala paste from the items listed above and keep it aside.
  • Heat a pressure cooker, add oil, green chillis, chopped onions and fry till the onions are little translucent. 
  • Now add the masala paste and fry till the raw smell of the onions goes away.
  • Add the tomatoes fry for 2mins and add the marinated mutton into it.
  • Let the mutton cook for at least 5- 10 mins till its water comes out it.
  • Now add the cooked chana dal, 1/2cup of water and adjust the flavor with salt and pressure cook it for 15-20mins depending on the tenderness you would like to serve.
  • (Generally we like it very soft and not to be that watery so i prefer to cook it for minimum of 5-6 whistles)
  • Garnish it with coriander of it is ready. If needed, you can add some water and cook for few mins.
Hint: Do not clean mutton with water too much which may reduce the taste and flavor of it. 
Pressure cook it more, for more tender mutton curry.
