Marinate 1kg mutton with salt, 1/2 tsp haldi , 2 tsp red chili pwdr( I used 1 tsp red chili pwdr+1 tsp paprika), 1 tbsp ginger paste and 1 tbsp garlic paste.
Roast about 10 small shallots (sprayed with pam) in the oven on broil for about 15-20 minutes….till they get carmelized. Dry roast 3/4 tbsp jeera, 3/4 tbsp coriander seeds, 10 whole dry red chillies, 1/2 cup desiccated coconut, 1 1/2 tbsp khus khus, 1 inch dalchini, 4-5 laung and 2 star anise. Now grind this along with the roasted onions into a fine paste using a little water….keep aside.
Heat some oil, sear marinated mutton for a few minutes to seal juices, add two pureed tomatoes and bhuno till masala leaves oil. Add the onion paste and bhuno for another 4-5 minutes. Now mix in about 1/4 cup yoghurt whisked with 1tsp turmeric and some salt. Add enough water to make a thin gravy……simmer on low heat till tender. Garnish with freshly chopped dhania and serve!
PS: if you want you can add big pieces of seared potato just before the slow simmer stage.
