Mutton Pepper Fry

This dish is a lip smacking dish, from the cuisine of South India. If you like spicy gravies with chapathis or rice, then this recipe is obviously for you…! Yupp…this mutton pepper fry is very hot..! 

It makes a delicious combo with Indian rotis and also with rasam, sambar rice, etc. Its not only a mouth watering dish, it also makes us feel like we had a hearty meal.

Check out this tasty recipe


·   Mutton – 500 gms, cut into small-medium size pieces

·   Whole black pepper – 2 tsp

·   Green chilli – 2

·   Ginger & garlic chopped – 1 tbsp

·   Coriander leaves chopped – 2-3 tbsp

·   Lemon juice – 1 tbsp

·   Onion – 2 big, sliced finely

·   Coriander powder – 2 – 2½ tsp
·   Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
·   Garam masala – ½ tsp
·   Fennel (perumjeerakam) powder – ½ tsp
·   Tomato – 1 small-medium, sliced
·   Water – 1 cup
·   Curry leaves
·   Salt
·   Oil – I used coconut oil

1.       Grind together whole black pepper, green chilli, ginger, garlic and coriander leaves with 2 tbsp water to a fine paste. Add this ground masala, lemon juice and salt to cleaned mutton pieces. Marinate it for half an hour to one hour.

2.            Heat oil in the pressure cooker. Add sliced onions and cook till it becomes golden brown. Add all the masala powders. Mix well. Add a little water (1 tbsp) to mix everything well. When oil starts appearing, add tomato, salt (keep in mind that salt is already added to mutton) and curry leaves. Mix well. After 3-4 mins, add marinated mutton pieces. Mix well. Add 1 cup water, let it boil. Pressure cook till the mutton is done.

3.            If there is any gravy, continue cooking, so that the water dries up and mutton is covered with masala. Garnish with freshly ground pepper and onion rings.

4.            Serve it with rice, roti, etc;
This curry has a dry consistency. But I made a semi dry version. You can adjust the gravy to suit your taste. The more you roast on low flame, the darker the mutton will be. It will be great if you can marinate mutton for 1-2 hours.
