To tenderize the mutton:

  • 250 gms boneless mutton cleaned and washed well
  • salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
  • 1 glass of water

To fry the mutton:

  • 1-2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder


Step 1(Pressure cook the mutton):

  • In a pressure cooker, add mutton pieces, add salt as per taste.
  • Add ginger garlic paste, add water and mix up well.
  • Pressure cook the mutton until it gets tender.
  • Reduce the steam.
  • If there is any water remaining in the pressure cooked mutton, evaporate the excess water by keeping the cooker lid uncovered and cooking on low to medium flame.
  • Take the mutton pieces in a bowl.

Step 2 (Frying the mutton):

  • In a pan, add oil and heat it.
  • Into it add ginger garlic paste and saute for few minutes until raw smell disappears.
  • Into it, add boiled mutton pieces and saute until they turn golden brown color.
  • Add red chilli powder, mix well and saute for about five minutes on low flame.
  • Mutton fry is ready.
  • Sprinkle lemon juice all over the mutton and serve.


  • The more the mutton is sauteed in oil, the more crispier it gets.
  • If a softer mutton piece is preferred, then saute only for few minutes after adding red chili powder.
  • If preferred additional spices such as turmeric powder, garam masala powder too can be added while shallow frying.
