1.Since we add yogurt and deep fried onions after the mutton is tenderized make sure to not overcook the mutton.Cook it upto 80% soft.
2.After yogurt and barista is added the mutton has to be cooked again for about 15 minutes so avoid overcooking the mutton in the beginning as it removes the perfect flavor of the meat.
3. We can also add a paste of soaked cashewnut to this gravy to give more thickness and to give more richness to the gravy. Add the cashewnut paste first then add beaten yogurt and cook the gravy...This gives more thickness to the mutton gravy.
