The name of the recipe pepper mutton itself is quite mouth watering and today I would like to share an interesting version of mutton recipe and the name pepper says it all.

             Here, I have used black pepper corn powder to bring the spicy flavor and also to give a hot spicy taste to the routine mutton gravy with a twist and black pepper has got amazing medicinal values and its healthy to use it in recipes…


        I have made the pepper mutton masala in a regular style but usually red chilli powder is added into the curry and here I have chosen to add green chillies and black pepper to bring the spicy flavor out of the mutton gravy.

         Pepper mutton recipe is quite common down south as well as in andhra region. Whenever we make mutton recipes, the quality of the meat has to be fine and red.

         There are various versions of making mutton recipes and each region follows its own method and procedure but the outcome is always perfect.


In this mutton pepper masala I have made the masala by using onions, tomatoes and  green chillies and black pepper which is perfect for winters and rainy.

The recipe goes quite well with roti/chapati as well as rice…Mutton gravies are common in hyderabad and all across south india and it is used to make curries and is also used to make many rice delicacies and used to make kababs too…

          Mutton if cut into medium pieces and not large then the dish comes out perfectly and also the mutton tends to cook faster and also juicier…Large mutton chunks take long time to cook.


       In order to make mutton pepper masala, making use of small or medium mutton chunks is necessary as cooking mutton prefectly blended with all the spices gives out a perfect and yummy taste.

            Mutton or meat usually tastes best with rice delicacies and whenever we get meat at home I try to make best recipes of mutton so that I can share with my blog readers and also I try to make curries that are suitable to be eaten with rice…

Below are the recipe details on how to make pepper mutton recipe or mutton pepper masala which is spicy and hot with the main ingredient being pepper in the gravy…

    Dear Asiya,
    How r u? U make really awesome and simple recipes and for someone like me trying to cook for the first time, it’s really easy and I get to make delicious recipes for my family. Sometimes it does turn out too spicy or a little watery or the taste is not too good esp when I do chicken. I like the Briyani recipes and the mutton ones are really good. Really like your blog a lot. Mostly as u use natural spices and not the ones from the market like the food colour…
    Take care and hav a nice day!

    I made this with neck of lamb, on the bone. I don’t have a pressure cooker, but started it off on the hob then transferred to a slow cooker. I didn’t have any fresh methi leaves, but it was still delicious s and fell off the bone. I love your recipes because they’re so tasty and easy to follow. I had half a turnip which also went into the pot. My 2 say they don’t like cooked turnip, but they didn’t notice it was in there. It was just delicious.
