Pepper Mutton

Mutton Pepper fry - a tasty and a must try recipe for the mutton lovers. Those who eat mutton, I can say, would never went off trying this recipe. Even my hubby who does not eat mutton that much, likes this mutton pepper fry, whenever I make this. Actually, I reduced preparing mutton at home after coming to Singapore, as I feel I do not get good variety mutton here. But last week, when we went to Mustafa, bought the mutton in a little quantity and tried this. It really came out good. Do try and let me know how this fry came for you...

Mutton fry

Tasty and delicious mutton pepper fry is ready... 

1. Here you can add onion and tomato before adding mutton pieces also. No harm in it, Since we are going to pressure cook all. 
2. The 6 whistles took around 14 min for me. It might vary based on the cooker and the quality of mutton. if If the mutton is not cooked, add some more water and pressure cook it again for another 7 to 8 min. 
3. Take care while adding salt as the mutton already contsins salt. 
4. Adding butter is optional, but I feel it enhances the taste. Salted or unsalted butter can used. While using salted butter again take care of the salt amount while adding. 
5. I used the mutton cooked water for preparing soup. But my mom used to say if we leave that water in it, the mutton would be more tasty.
