Achari mutton

I blogged before about achari veg and achari paneer. Husband and elder daughter are fan of mutton, i prefer chicken to mutton. We have been trying hard to reduce eating mutton and to an extent we are successful in our attempt. We eat mutton twice or thrice a month now and we just buy a pound. Now coming to mutton achari i tasted this curry in a hotel in Dubai by name karachi durbar and i heard they put mixed pickle in this curry. I tried once and liked the taste. This time i  thought of using achari masala instead of mixed pickle.

The ingredients for masala are as follows :

Rai 1/4 tsp
Fenugreek 1/4 tsp
Saunf 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/2tsp
Coriander seeds 1/2 tsp

Dry roast all the above and make fine powder.

Other ingredients needed are

Mutton 1 pound
Ginger garlic paste 2tbsp
Turmeric powder a pinch
Salt as per taste
Onions 1 sliced
Green chillies 2
Ginger julienne

For seasoning:-

Oil 1 tsp
Rai 1/4 tsp
Fenugreek few 5-6

First pressure cook mutton,ginger garlic paste,turmeric powder and salt. The mutton has to be soft.Drain the water and don't throw the water,that water will be used to make gravy.

In another pan take oil 2 tbsp and add onions and green chillies 2. Fry for a while. Add the achari powder and saute until oil oozes out. Add the mutton stock and let it boil for 5-6 minutes.Then add the mutton pieces and cook till the gravy thickens. Lastly season the curry with rai and fenugreek. Just before serving add ginger julienne.
