MUTTON HARYANI

Photobucket


There are so many ways to cook mutton. Each and every Indian states has its own unique recipe to boot. The spices used play a vital factor to how it will taste.

Now I'm using mutton but can easily substituted with beef or lamb.  It is way more healthier since use of oil and coconut is kept to a minimum. Beside cooking on stove top, you can also use your pressure cooker, cook  up to 4-5 whistles. Adjust the spice level according to your taste. Have added a tablespoon of chili powder to the original recipe. Do you know the difference between lamb and mutton?

Lamb    :     A sheep than is less than a year old. Slaughtered between the ages of 4-12 months, very tender
                   and little fat

Mutton  :     Older sheep, has much stronger flavor, tougher meat, considerable amount of fat

Despite of the changes, this recipe is a keeper, won't feel bored to cook it again and again. Marvellous!

The recipe as you wrote it would be so pleasing to my hubby. He'd love it. As for me, I just might give it a try, replacing the meat with beans. It looks too good not to try.

Looks tempting.We donn't cook mutton very often, mainly at Christmas, but sure we can get it all year round, so I've no excuse not to try your recipe. Besides, almond, coconut milk and so many spices must make it yummy.

The Mom Chef said...

I made a lamb stew this week and was disappointed because I thought the delicate lamb flavor was lost to the beef broth. Now, if it had been mutton, the flavor would have survived! This looks absolutely fantastic. Maybe I'll try again, but with this cut of meat and recipe instead. Many thanks!
