  • 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.
