Make paste: use below ingredients and make paste using mixer/food processor.

onions-11/2 big

1.Marinate mutton with turmeric powder ,salt ,red chilli powder,ginger-garlic paste and curd and keep it aside for abt 15 min.Heat oil in a pressure cooker add cumin seeds and curyy leaves and green chilli.Add onions paste ,fry till onion paste becomes light brown .

2.Add tomatoe puree and fry the mixture till the raw smell of tomotoes goes off.

3.Add the marianted mutton pieces and mix it all well. Fry the mutton with the masala in medium flame till the oil seperates from the muton .Add garam masala and fry for couple of min.

4.Now add one cup of water into it. Stir it well so that all of the ingredients mix together and close the lid of the pressure cooker.

5.Pressure cook it until the 4 or 5 whistle goes off. After that remove from heat and keep it aside.

6.If you feel the gravy looking liquidish,again cook in the same pressure cooker or transfer it into a seperate pan and boil for few more min or till all water evoparated from the curry.

7.Garnish it with coriander leaves.This is good to eat with rice or chapathi n parathas n pooris too :)
