1.Here I have added palak to the cooked mutton and pressure cooked to make it easy and quick.
2.If one is opting for another method then, cook the mutton and palak separately and later mix them both and cook for few minutes to get the perfect taste.
3.Here I have used cooker to cook the curry to make it quickly and yet maintain its taste.
4. I have added aloo too into the curry but it can be skipped if not required.
5.If one does not have methi readily available then it can be skipped but adding methi gives an amazing aroma to the curry.
