  • 500g mutton (goat/lamb), cut into pieces

  • 3 tablespoons ghee or oil

  • 2 large onions, finely sliced

  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste

  • 1 cup yogurt, whisked

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder

  • 2 teaspoons red chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder

  • 2 teaspoons fennel powder

  • 2 teaspoons coriander powder

  • 4-5 green cardamom pods

  • 1 black cardamom pod

  • 4-5 cloves

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • Salt to taste

  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish

  • 1 cup mixed microgreens (radish, mustard, pea shoots, etc.)


  1. Prepare the Mutton:

    • Heat ghee or oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot.

    • Add green cardamom, black cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon stick. Sauté until fragrant.

  2. Cook the Base:

    • Add sliced onions and sauté until golden brown.

    • Add ginger-garlic paste and cook for 1-2 minutes.

  3. Cook the Mutton:

    • Add mutton pieces and brown them on all sides.

    • Add turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin powder, fennel powder, and coriander powder. Mix well.

    • Add whisked yogurt and salt. Cook until the oil separates from the masala.

  4. Simmer:

    • Add enough water to cover the mutton. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and let it simmer for about 1.5-2 hours, or until the mutton is tender.

    • Add garam masala and mix well. Simmer for another 5 minutes.

  5. Finish with Microgreens:

    • Turn off the heat and stir in the mixed microgreens.

    • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with naan or rice.
