Wash mutton well and cut it into small pieces.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add fennel, cloves, bay leaves & cinnamon and stir well.
When fennel becomes slight brown in color, add sliced onions, green chillies and curry leaves.

When onions turn golden brown, add ginger-garlic paste.
Reduce the flame and saute it.
Add chilly powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder and stir for 5 mins on medium flame.
:- If u want the mutton curry to be less spicy, reduce chilly powder to 1 tsp and green chillies to 2 nos.
Add tomatoes and salt and mix well for 5 mins.
Add the garam masala powder.
After 3 mins, add the mutton pieces and stir well.
Keep it on medium flame for 10 mins.

wow super ...????????????amazing curry ..a real authentic kerala style ..??
This is really a simple recipe but awesome taste!
The gravy came out with authentic taste. However mutton was bit tough. Is there a way to soften it?
HaneefaPlease boil the mutton with whole garam masala and ginger garlic until soft. Then try the recipie
Awesome Recipe! Comes out well every time i make. Thanks a lot for the recipe..
Thank you Very much Madam. recipe is superb, fantabulous!!!!
Thank you very munch Madam.you made my day . this Recipe is superb.
Thanks for a good recipe...i have tried lots of ur recipies and all tastes good:) keep it up!!!
this a very good n easy receipe....we all liked it a lot.thank u so much.
I agree about the water. I put only 3 cups of water. As an Indonesian, cooking Indian dishes are quite challenging esp. for me who is still learning to cook. I tried this receipe, and it made me a prof!! It was a big surprise for my husband--who is from Kerala. He loves it so much. A big thank you!
very good taste,thanku very much
Thanks for the recipe....simple and easy..
It came out well Excellent recipe. Thanx a lot.
I liked the recipe. It brought together the right flavours. I would agree with the comments to add yogurt + maybe dress with coriander
Very Good recipe...
I loved this recipe and so did my family. I made a few changes here and there. Instead of replacing the large onions with small onions, I used both. If you want you can fry the small onions seperately and add them at the end. I added two table spoons of yoghurt after the chilly powder was added. I also added ground poppy seed (khus khus) after the garam masala was added and sauted it for about three minutes. I personally felt that 6 tea cups of water was a little too much. Four tea cups is better, if not even still more, that is if you want thicker gravy for the curry. But overall the recipe was great!!
Mutton curry came out well.. Thanks!
