Mutton gravy is a recipe which we all crave to eat with rice or roti. Mutton gravy recipe can be made in various ways but here I have not used onions and tomatoes to make the gravy but have prepared the dish in a different style. Mutton or meat is such a non-vegetarian dish which goes perfect by cooking them combined with vegetables as well.

Check out other mutton or lamb recipes such as pepper mutton, mutton tahari, mutton masala etc.

One major combination of meat is potatoes and we make use of this combination generally while making mutton dishes.

The other combinations to make mutton are different veggies such as bhindi/okra, and in Hyderabad meat is often combined with all sorts of veggies such as arbi and made arbi recipe and it is often combined with gongura leaves or sorrel leaves and made as gongura mutton, it is also combined with spinach leaves as well and so on...

Chicken is something that can hardly be combined but mutton is easily mixed up with veggies too and made into number of delicious curries or sabzi recipes.

The gravy of non-veg recipes is neither too liquid like a shorba nor too dry and the consistency of the curry is made in such a way that it can be mixed with rice or can be taken with roti.

This mutton gravy is awesome in taste and perfect with pulao or bagara rice. This is no onion no tomato gravy but I have used yogurt and fried onions to make the gravy which gives a perfect taste to the mutton.

Mutton/meat should be of high quality when buying it and should be fresh and red to get the perfect taste.

Prep Time 20 minutes mins

Cook Time 40 minutes mins

Total Time 1 hour hr


  • 500 gms meat/mutton
  • 3 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 cardamoms
  • 1 small cinnamon stick
  • 2-3 black pepper corns
  • 3-4 medium sized onions finely sliced
  • 3-4 vertically slit green chillies
  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
  • salt - as per taste
  • 1 teaspoon full red chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder haldi
  • 1 or 2 glasses of water
  • 1 cup yogurt approx... 200ml
  • 1 teaspoon roasted coriander seeds powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper corn powder
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala powder

Other ingredients:

  • 4 medium sized onions finely sliced and deep fried barista/deep fried onions
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped coriander leaves


  • Firstly, take a cooking pot, into it add oil and heat it.

  • Add cinnamon stick, cardamoms, cloves, black pepper corns and stir well.

  • Add finely sliced onions into it.

  • Also add slit green chillies and saute until onions turn soft.

  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute to get rid of the raw smell.

  • Add mutton pieces into it and roast them well until the mutton changes its color.

  • Add salt according to taste.

  • Add red chilli powder and turmeric powder and mix the whole mixture well.

  • Cover the lid and cook the mutton for about 5 minutes on low flame until oil appears at the corners.

  • Add a glass of water or two and cook the mutton until it gets tender or pressure cook to tenderize it(do not overcook the mutton).

  • Reduce the steam of the cooker and switch on the flame.

  • Beat the yogurt and add into the tenderized mutton curry and mix well.

  • Add garam masala powder, roasted coriander seeds powder, black pepper corn powder.

  • Cook for 5 minutes.

  • Crush the deep fried onions and add into the mutton curry and mix well.

  • Add in some fresh coriander leaves.

  • Cook it for 10 minutes on low flame until a thick gravy is observed.

  • Switch off the flame.

  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with roti or rice...


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.

    If i am putting uncooked mutton in cooker to cook and then putting it in gravy, is there any problem with taste???


    • asiya

      That sounds a good idea...yes you can do that but there might be a slight variation in taste...But your dish may not spoil if you use a boiled mutton...
