  • 500 gram Mutton Fresh from the leg or shoulder
  • 3 piece Onions medium sized puree’d
  • 3 piece Tomatoes medium sized puree’d
  • 4 tbsp Vegetable Oil I use Rice Bran oil
  • 3 tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste Fresh works best
  • 1 piece Black Cardamom
  • 1 inch Cinnamon
  • 4 piece Cloves
  • 1 piece Bay Leaf
  • 1.5 tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 tbsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 0.5 tbsps Black Pepper Powder
  • 1 cup Yoghurt or Curds Home made works very well
  • 0.5 tbsp Garam Masala Home made works very well
  • 1.5 tbsp Ghee
  • 0.5 tsp Salt To taste


  • Heat oil and crackle whole spices i.e. black cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaf & cloves in a pressure cooker. Season the oil with these till it gets aromatic.
  • Add and fry onion puree for around 9 minutes or till the onions leave oil.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and fry for 5 minutes or till their raw smell goes away.
  • Add tomato puree, half of the curds & a paste made with powdered masalas (red chilli, turmeric, coriander and black pepper powder & a little water) and fry till the masala is ready and oil separates from it.
  • Add the mutton and fry with this masala for about 12-15 minutes turning every two minutes or so. Add the salt here to seal the juices of mutton within.
  • Add a cup of water to remaining half of the curds and add to the cooking mutton. Cover the pressure cooker with the lid and wait for 4 whistles. This should take about 10 minutes or so.
  • Once the pressure releases by itself, add 0.5 cups of warm water, garam masala and ghee. Put the lid back on and give it another two whistles.
  • Remove from fire and let the pressure release by itself.
  • Serve Dahi Tamater ka Gosht hot with aromatic basmati rice or freshly made rotis.
