Quick & Easy Mutton Masala ~ Easy Mutton Curry ~ Day 3

Day 3

Quick & Easy Mutton Masala in Pressure Cooker
Mutton Masala

This recipe has the name 'easy' due to the fact that it does not need any chopping and frying of onions which many of them find it difficult and also dislike. So there is no need of shedding tears while chopping and spending lots of time in getting that perfect color of the fried onion. Also there is no need of any fresh tomatoes instead of which I have used tomato ketchup to compensate for the sweetness of fried onion as well as the sourness from tomatoes.

I came across this recipe while watching a video on YouTube by Sara's Kitchen by the name Hyderabadi Shahi Mutton. For some reason I did not want to use the same name of the dish so I chose to just call it Easy Mutton Masala. In the original recipe, we are required to marinate the Mutton for 3 to 4 hours. I am sure the marination will enhance the flavors, but even without marinating, the results were excellent. So if you have time to spare or if you are preparing in advance, you can very well marinate it or just go ahead and make it instantly like I did.
