Chettinad Mutton Chukka

I hardly heard peoples saying no to Chettinad dishes, myself and my DH are great fans of Chettinad dishes, if anyone ask us watz our favourite cuisine, our choice will go definitely to chettinad dishes especially their mutton dishes, its has been ages i prepared mutton chukka at home and this sunday my DH bought a kg of mutton from Indian meat stall, after making out some Madras Mutton Briyani, i prepared this chettinad style mutton chukka to enjoy along with the briyani..This chettinad mutton chukka gets ready really very quick if u prepare this chukka varuval in pressure cooker, a spice paste prepared specially for making out this chukka varuval is truly very important and which brings the authentic taste to this chettinad mutton chukka varuval..For vegetarians, u can definitely go for potatoes and soyachunks both together works out wonder and also need very less time to cook up..


1/4 kg Mutton
20nos Shallots (chopped)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped)
2nos Bayleaves
2nos Cardamom seeds
Few Curry leaves
1/2tsp Fennel seeds
3tbsp Gingelly Oil
Salt
Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

To Grind:
6nos Garlic cloves
1tbsp Ginger pieces
5nos Dry red chillies
1tbsp Coriander seeds
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1inch Cinnamon stick
1no Clove
1tsp Peppercorns
1tsp Fennel seeds
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1no Cardamom seeds

Grind all the ingredients given in the list 'To Grind' as fine paste..Heat a tsp of oil in a pressure cooker add the mutton with salt, saute for few minutes, cook the mutton with grounded paste and half a cup of water for upto 5whistles or until the mutton gets well cooked..

Heat the remaining oil, fry the bay leaves, cardamom seeds,curry leaves and fennel seeds, add immediately the chopped shallots, chopped tomatoes and saute for few minutes until the veggies get well cooked, add the already cooked mutton along with the cooked water..Cook until the water get evaporates and fry until mutton chukka turns a semi gravy or fry until the oil get separates..

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve immediately!!
