Masala Mutton Chops

Sometimes I lose track of the number of recipes I have made and it is until I open up the blog to see. This is my 151st recipe and I thought I would be done by the 50th but look at me now.

This has mostly happened because I have had a very unsuccessful work career specially after my mom's passing and even though I got many opportunities with newspapers and magazines with a bit of fame but that doesn't mean I am doing well.

Still I am grateful because I haven't been taught to be ungrateful and I think gratitude is important to keep yourself positive which again I am not because of the nature of my experiences. I hope things change for me because they really need to or else you guys will keep seeing recipes which will eventually make you say the same things that most of you have been saying to me which are "Don't you have anything else to do other than going to the gym and cooking?"

WOW! This is actually my first ever rant or sob story on the blog. I better move to the recipe which is Masala Mutton Chops. Again trying to satisfy the desi in me this week I choose mutton.



INGREDIENTS:

1 kilogram mutton chops


4 medium onions finely sliced

4-6 green chilies sliced in halves

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

3/4 cup yogurt

1 cup tomato puree or 3 tomatoes finely chopped

1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste

2 teaspoon red chili powder

salt to taste

1 teaspoon garam masala

6-8 black pepper corns

1 cinnamon stick

2-4 green cardamoms

4-6 cloves

3 tablespoons finely chopped mint leaves

finely chopped coriander for garnishing






Start off by heating up oil in a pan on medium heat.

Add all the dried spices i-e cardamoms, pepper corns, cinnamon stick and cloves. Fry until fragrant.



Add sliced onions and fry them until translucent.



Add mutton chops and ginger garlic paste. Mix it well and cook until the meat changes it's color like people do.



Add sliced green chilies and simmer on low heat for about 20 minutes while  uncovering and stirring occasionally or else the onions will burn.



Take off the lid and add turmeric, red chili powder, salt and lemon juice. Mix it well.




Turn the heat to medium again and add tomato puree or chopped tomatoes, yogurt and mint leaves.

Cover and simmer for 20 minutes again.




Take off the lid and turn the heat to high. Give the chops a nice stir and turn the heat off. Masala Mutton Chops is ready to be garnished and served.


Have it with naan, some yogurt and salad. It will definitely make your lousy day.
