Tried and tasted by Nivedita,
The food I miss the most in India (or to be precise, my house) is Non Vegetarian food. I miss cooking These preparations. This photo is taken when I was in UAE. Even before leaving UAE, my last Friday Food was all these three together.
I have already posted the Biryani recipe long back, and the recipe for chops and curry was due.
Without much introduction, I am posting the recipe for Green mutton chops.
(I forgot to take seperate photoes! So for all the three recipes, the same photo will be posted!!)
Mutton Chops - 1/2 kilo
Apply salt and turmeric to the chops for half an hour. Then clean it 2 to 3 times with good water.
Ginger and Garlic paste - 1 tbsp each
Oil - 1 tbsp
Fresh coriander - 1 small bunch
Green chilly - 3 to 4
Curds - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1 tbsp
Put all the ingredients and make in to fine paste in a grinder or blender.
Marinate the mutton chops with the ready paste at least for 2 hours. If it is marinated over night, it tastes better as mutton will be tender and all the flavors goes inside it.
Oil - 1/4 cup(you can reduce if you do not like more oil)
Onion - 3 big, cut into long thin slices
Tomato - 2 big, cut into small cubes
Bay leaf - 1
Garlic Ginger paste - 1 tbsp together
Whole garam masala - 1 tbsp Crushed
(Cardamom, Clove, Cinnamon, nutmeg, Pepper)
Fresh Coriander - 1/4 bunch, cleaned, washed and chopped for garnishing
Kasoori methi - 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste, add 1 tbsp first. After the mutton is cooked half, check again and adjust the taste.
Add oil in a very thick and wide kadai. When very hot, add onion and fry till it changes its color to golden brown. Now add whole garam masala and bay leaf.. After few seconds, add ginger and garlic paste. Fry for a minute. Add tomato. Mix properly. Cover it and cook till Tomato is tender. Now add marinated mutton chops. Mix with all the masala. Add 2 cups of water. Cover it and cook for at least half an hour, make it sure to check in between for the water. If you feel, still water is needed to cook the mutton, add one more cup. When you see the mutton is cooked, add kasoori methi and keep on a high flame. Cook or fry it till the water is gone. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve it with Lemon juice sprinkled on the top.
Sending this one to Srilekha's EFM - MUTTON SERIES! event.
Hope you all will enjoy this feast. My next recipe in Non vegetarian is my way of Mutton curry.
