Curry Leaf Meat Curry Recipe @

This is a unique  meat curry where fresh  pan roasted and blended curry leaves is added in the gravy.

Curry Leaf  Meat  Curry could be made with mutton or  chicken   too.  Chicken takes lesser time to cook, so adjust accordingly.

By adding curry leaves, Curry Leaf  Meat Curry  would turn greenish in color but I added more onion and tomato so  green color is not visible.

If you want a semi dry gravy, add less water but if the meat is still tough,  keep adding  half a  cup water of water until  you achieve the required consistency of the gravy.

You can adjust the spiciness of this recipe by decreasing or increasing  number of  green chili  and  chili powder.

The meat gets  really  tender and the sauce becomes incredibly flavorful.  This goes well with rice, chapati, appam, prata  or naan.

Mutton Korma Recipe @

Mutton pieces  are marinated in yogurt then slow cooked until tender.

There a tons of recipe for Korma.  One of them uses ground almond, cashew or grated coconut like this  and   this  . You can use chicken, beef or lamb for  cooking the recipe. .  .

This Mutton Korma uses  pounded fried onion and to be marinated for at least an hour.    The marination not only gives a tasty flavor  but also help to tenderize the meat.

Another difference  was, this Mutton Korma does not involve sauteing the spices in ghee as  you normally do, The spices, yogurt  and ghee are added together with mutton.

Pounded cinnamon, clove, peppercorn and cardamom are also  used

Ground Beef  Tomato Soup Recipe @

A nutritious   meat and tomato soup flavored with curry powder, onion, garlic and  ginger.

You cam  make this Ground  Beef  & Tomato Soup with chunks of beef or mutton  and slow cooked for hours.  But I want a quicker way so prefer to use ground meat.

There is no right or wrong to use your own preferred spices for making this Ground Beef & Tomato Soup.  This time I use  a  ready made chicken curry powder or mix your own consisting of coriander powder, chili powder, cumin and turmeric.

It was rather thick, you may add more water for  extra  gravy.  If desired, other vegetables like carrot, potato  or other beans could be added too. .

Minced Meat Recipe  @

This hearty meal of Keema Matar  is normally a rich and heavy dish but here we keep it light and fresh by using very little oil and leanest meat either minced beef/lamb or mutton.

My son loves to scoop it up with some naan or chapati but it would also be good over rice.  Normally it uses various spices such as coriander, turmeric, cumin and chili powder individually  but now am using ready made meat masala powder  that was available from local market or supermarket.

I'm not a big fan for green peas but they were absolutely perfect in this dish.  They lend a slight sweetness among the spicy  meat and juicy tomatoes. Cubed potato is also included in this Keema Matar.

Kofta (Meatball) Curry Recipe @

These spicy meatballs are served in a mildly hot gravy, seasoned with onion, ginger, garlic and some spices. These koftas are fried before cooking. If you're health conscious, avoid frying, you can simply  drop the meatballs in the gravy and let them simmered until it was cooked through or another option was to bake them..

Kofta (Meatball) Curry Recipe @

It can be made from ground beef, lamb or chicken. The corn flour acts as a binding agent so you will get  a smooth and beautifully shaped balls.

This low fat version of kofta curry without coconut milk, yogurt or cream had just the right amount of heat and spice.

This is a wonderful recipe combining lentil and meat. Though it requires constant stirring to ensure that the gravy does not stick to the bottom of the pot, it is so satisfying and absolutely delicious.

Instead of toor dal, you can use kidney bean, bengal gram or a mixture of all the dal. Another option, add vegetables like cauliflower, potato, yam or turnip to this dish for a more healthier version.

1/2 C  masoor dal (split red lentil)
750g mutton cut into bite size
1 big onion

1+1/2 in ginger chopped
6 cloves garlic chopped
1 tsp cumin seed
1/2 tsp garam masala
2 TB cooking oil
2 TB lemon juice
3 TB chopped cilantro
salt and sugar to taste


Place dal, onion, green chili, cumin powder, turmeric, half of the ginger and mutton in a deep pot.

Pour in 4 cups of water and bring to boil. Cover and cook until meat and dal are tender, stirring in between.

Heat the oil, add cumin  seed, when it begins to change color, add remaining ginger and garlic, saute until fragrant.

Add chili powder, stir then remove from heat.

Pour this mixture together with the oil into cooked dal and meat.

Slow Cooked Beef Recipe @

Rendang is a dish using  chicken, beef, mutton or even seafood slow cooked with dried/fresh  chili, onion, ginger, galangal, fragrant leaves in coconut milk until the the liquid is dried up and the meat is tender. It is part of  essential meal for festive occasions in South East Asian countries.

There are many variations to cook this dish.  For spicy food lovers, this Rendang Padang uses  bird's eye chili (chili padi)  which can be varied according to your taste.  The slow cook process allows the meat to absorb all the spices and becomes soft. This also requires  frequent stirring so it does not stick to the bottom of the pan..

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!

Mutton Dalcha Recipe  @

Mutton Dalcha is a  meat stew made with lentil and tamarind.. Used mutton ribs if possible since it is much tastier than using the meat. The lentil and mutton are boiled then added to the curry after the meat turns soft. In addition vegetables like brinjal, carrot, potato or green banana are used in cooking this dish.

I would say the dalcha is almost a complete meal by itself. Green mango could be included if available to enhance the flavor thus giving slight tangy taste.  Adjust the chili powder to suit your taste. You could also use chicken, lamb or beef for dalcha.

Mutton Dalcha tends to become thick when cool so dilute with hot water. Let's see what you need for preparing this healthy food.

For those who can't take hot and spicy dish, feel free to reduce the chili powder and black pepper used. Here is how I prepare this wonderful curry:
