Kolhapuri Mutton (Mutton Curry, Kolhapuri style)

{{totalReview}}
The Kolhapuri Mutton Curry is a trademark recipe of the south-west region of Maharashtra, a Western province of India. Once home to the royal families of the Marathas (rulers of Maharashtra in the 1600s), Kolhapur and its food still show hints of grandeur and richness. Traditionally made with mutton (male goat), this recipe can also be recreated with chicken or beef. The Kolhapuri Masala featured in the dish is versatile and can be used in other dishes.

    • In a large dry pan over medium heat, add all ingredients for Kolhapuri Masala.

    • Transfer the mutton to a large bowl.

    • Add the Kolhapuri Masala, turmeric powder, and chili powder, and cook for about 2 minutes.
    • Add the roughly-chopped tomatoes and cook until they have softened, and until all the water has evaporated, or for about 5 to 6 minutes.
    • Add the mutton to the Masala and coat it well with the Masala. Cook for about 3 minutes.
    • Add 600 ml of water and let the mutton curry simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes.
