Useful tips from my desk

  1. Use the best quality mutton from a trusted butcher.
  2. Cuts of meat make a big difference in taste and an experienced person only knows how to cut meat properly.
  3. You can also simmer this recipe and simmer it for 60-70 minutes instead of cooking it in a pressure cooker.
    The flavor will be different.
  4. Do not put too much water in the pressure cooker before turning it off.
  5. The mutton will release its water and if you add too much water the curry will be very tasty.
  6. Before adding the curd, put the mutton in the pressure cooker and fry it well over high heat to bake the meat.
  7. This will keep the juice in the mutton and it will be very tasty.
  8. In what I learned from my elders, the color of the fried onion determines the color of the final curry.
  9. Don’t rush to fry onions. Fry until golden brown.
  10. Do this over medium heat; otherwise, the onion will burn and the taste will not be good.
  11. You can see the process of making golden fried onions here.
  12. I also like to add poppy seeds and some cashews or almonds when grinding the onion paste.
  13. This makes the sauce even richer.
  14. Add a little flour to the curd to make sure it doesn’t separate as you cook.
  15. This is a trick that I always use when I use curry in yogurt.
  16. To make gosht almond korma, do it with some almond paste.
