Mutton Dou Pyaza

Mutton in America is not tasty as back at home and it's very expensive. Speaking of home I miss it and everyone knows that. Missing home so much that despite the availability of all these fancy ingredients I end up making desi food. 

So this time I have made one of my favorite mutton dishes called 'Mutton Dou Pyaza' in a very simple and easy way.


Mutton 500 grams

Onions 400 grams chopped 4 pieces per onion

1 big chopped tomato

Oil 100 grams

Ginger paste 1 teaspoon

Garlic paste 1 teaspoon

Garam masala 1 teaspoon

Cumin powder 1 teaspoon

Coriander powder 1 teaspoon

Red chili powder 2 teaspoon

Salt 2 teaspoon

Turmeric powder 1 teaspoon

Kasuri methi 1/2 teaspoon

1/2 cup yogurt

It's very simple and easy to make. Put mutton, onions, tomato and ginger garlic paste in a non stick pan the same which you will use for cooking it. Add salt, chili red powder, garam masala, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric, yogurt and oil. Mix it well.

Onions here are kept thick because if you slice them thin they will cook before the mutton and the dish will not taste the way it's supposed to.

Add half cup water. Cover the lid and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes remove the lid and give the mutton a good spin with your utensil.

Cover and simmer on low heat again for another 15 minutes. 

Now your mutton and onions are about 80% cooked. The onion have almost turned into gravy. Give it a spin again just to.see that nothing is burning.

Note - if you think anything is burning in your dish add half a cup water. But that shouldn't be the case since you're cooking on low heat.

Going top add more chopped onions to it.

  We'll cover and cook for 15 more minutes for one last time and it will be almost ready.

Now we will add half a teaspoon of kasoori methi to give the Dou Pyaza an exotic taste. Do not add it too much or it will get bitter. If you want to spice it up then you can also add sliced green chilies here.

Cover and simmer for 5 more minutes on low heat and your Mutton Dou Pyaza is ready.

It's an easy version of this recipe. There are harder version of this recipe available on the internet. I prefer this one as Ramazan is coming and it will be very hot inside kitchens to prepare meals. Much respect for the housewives who do that for big families all Ramadan. 

Mutton Dou Pyaza is best enjoyed with a little yogurt and naans of course. Absolutely tasty and full of flavor.
