All non vegetarian lovers' delight, the Kokani mutton curry has the perfect blend of spices, onion-coconut paste. Enjoy this soupy spicy hot curry.........


Ingredients:
Mutton, washed and cubed- 1 kg
Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
Asafetida (Hing) - ½ tsp
Ginger- garlic paste- 4 tsp (use homemade paste, ready-made paste contains vinegar)
Onion,chopped- 1 large size (around ¾  cup)
Homemade Masala/ Malwani masala/ Sunday Masala- 5 to 8 tsp (as per your taste, I use 6 tsp)
Potato- 2 medium size (optional)
Bay leaf- 4 to 5
Cinnamon stick- 2 inch piece 
Black pepper corns- 6
Oil- 6 tbsp

For coconut paste-
Oil- 2 tsp 
Chopped onion- ¼ cup
Grated fresh coconut or dry coconut-  ¾ cup to 1 cup 
Poppy seeds (Khaskhas)-  ½ tsp
Black pepper corns- 2
Mace (Javitri)- 1 small
Coriander seeds- ½ tsp
Cumin seeds- ½ tsp
Fennel seeds- ½ tsp
Star anise-1
Cloves- 3
Black cardamoms (Badi elayachi)- 1
Green chillies- 1 or 2
Fresh coriander leaves- a handful or ¼ cup

Heat oil in a pan, add all dry spices and chopped onion, saute for 2 minutes. Add grated coconut, saute until brown in color. Let this mixture cool, grind with chilli, coriander and some water into fine paste. 



Method :
Marinate the mutton with ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, hing and salt for minimum 30 minutes.

Heat the oil in big pan or wok, add bay leafs, pepper corns, cinnamon and onion, saute till translucent. 

Add the marinated mutton and saute on high flame for 5 minutes.

Cut potatoes into two half and add in mutton.

Add some water. Cover the wok with s.s. plate. Pour some water on a plate. Cook mutton for 15-20 minutes on medium heat. This yellow curry is also very testy. 

You can have this yellow cury as "Mutton clear soup".........

Now add homemade masala or malwani masala and above mentioned coconut paste. Add some required water to adjust consistency of curry. Cover and cook on low to med heat for 45 to 60 minutes or till cooked. Stir occasionally. 
Check the salt and consistency of curry. If necessary, add some hot water. Add the same water which we pour on plate. This is a thin curry. Boil curry for 3-4 minutes. 


Serve hot with rice, chapati, bhakari, aamboli or vade.



You can cook this mutton in pressure cooker also. But it tastes better in slow cook method. You can prepare chicken curry (Kombadi rassa) with same ingredients and method. But remember that chicken need less time to cook.
