Methi Mutton Fry

Ingredients:
Mutton 500gms or 1 pound
1 small onion, cut into long thin slices
1 small Tomato, cut into long thin slices
4 green chillies, slit length-wise
1/4 bunch coriander
2 spoons Ginger garlic paste
2 bunches Fenugreen (methi) leaves, separate the leaves from stems, wash, strain and keep aside
Bay leaf 2
Cinnamon 2
Clove 1
Red chilly powder 2 tsp
a pinch of turmeric powder
Salt as per taste
oil 4 tbsp

For Garam masala powder:
Cinnamon 1
Clove 4
Big elachi 2
Shah jeera 1 spoon
Nutmeg - small piece
Make a fine powder of the above.

Method:
In a pressure cooker, add washed mutton pieces, 1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste, 1 tbsp coriander powder, 1 tbsp salt, a pinch of turmeric, 1/2tbsp garam masala and pressure cook for 5 vigils. DO not add any water as Mutton gives away water
In another deep pan, add oil and when it is hot, add bay leaves, 1 small cinnamon stick, 2 cloves and fry for a min.
Add fenugreek leaves to the pan and fry for 2 more min
Add onion pieces, green chillies, curry leaves and fry till onion pieces are translucent
Now add ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell of GG vanishes
Add turmeric, salt, chopped tomatoes and mix well and cook till tomatoes are soft
Now add cooked mutton to the pan, add red chilli powder and remaining garam masala powder and cook on medium heat till all the water in the curry evaporates and oil starts showing up on the sides
Garnish the curry with coriander leaves and switch off the heat.

This curry tastes simply awesome. Goes well with white rice, Biryani rice, Mutton Biryani, Roti and Dosa!
