The gravy came out with authentic taste. However mutton was bit tough. Is there a way to soften it?

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!

I liked the recipe. It brought together the right flavours. I would agree with the comments to add yogurt + maybe dress with coriander

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!!
