Step 1

In a pressure cooker melt ghee , add ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder.Mix well and then add the goat pieces,some salt and saute in the ghee for 3-4 minutes.Then add some water not too much just to cover the meat pieces.Cook for 4-5 Whistles on a medium heat or until the meat is soft and tender. Transfer the broth in a bowl.

The reason why we are separating the pieces form the liquid is we want to make mutton roast not mutton gravy and at the same time we don’t want to waste this broth so we are going to add it to the masala and reduce it and then we are going to add the mutton pieces that way mutton will be nicely roasted and will retain all the flavor.

Step 2

To make Masala for Mutton Ghee roast, Dry roast Kashmiri chilies (Kashmiri Chilies adds a nice color to the recipe and at the same time they are less spicy) If you don't have Kashmiri Chilies then replace this with 4-5 regular chilies) .After roasting for 3 minutes transfer this to a plate and then roast the other spices Coriander seeds, Pepper corns, Fennel seeds, Cumin seeds, Cinnamon, Cloves, star anise and dry red chilies and roast it for some time until you feel the nice aroma of the roasted spices and be careful no not burn them.

Step 3

Transfer all the roasted spices to a blender and along with this add a piece of Ginger, Garlic and lemon juice and grind it to a smooth paste by adding some water.

Step 4

To make mutton Ghee roast melt some ghee in a pan and add the ground masala and also add yogurt to it and mix this well with the ghee. Now to this add the broth which we have separated initially and mix well with the masalas .Add some salt if required. We need to cook this until the gravy thickens and reduces.

Step 5

Now you can see the gravy is nice and thick, the ghee which we have added has oozed out now its time to add the cooked mutton pieces and mix well with the gravy. After mixing nicely cook this for another 4-5 minutes on a medium heat. Finally add some curry leaves for garnishing and turn off the heat.

Our Delicious Mutton Ghee roast is ready to be served. If you want a gravy kind of thing then you can add the mutton pieces along with the broth at the end and cook for 5 minutes in the masala.
