Mutton fry recipe/ Hyderabadi Tala Hua gosht on Tawa
Cut the mutton pieces into small 1.5'' inch pieces. Then wash and drain the water.
In a pressure cooker add mutton, ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, salt. Mix all this well. Then add water and mix.
Now cover the lid of pressure cooker and switch on the flame untill 2 whistles on high flame and then 2 whistles on low flame are heard. Wait for 5-10 minutes before opening the lid. (This allows the steam to cool down).
Now add this tenderized mutton along with the juice in it on to the tawa or pan. Cook on high flame untill only one fourth of the water remains in it.
At this point drizzle oil and fry the mutton on medium flame by constant flipping upside down with a spatula until it turns nice reddish in colour.
At last add 2 pinch of red chilli powder and chopped fresh green chillies and cook for 1 minute. Then finaly add chopped coriander and lemon juice.
- Large pieces of mutton can also be fried the same way but cutting into smaller 1.5''inch pieces allows the masala to get induced thoroughly into the mutton making the tala hua gosht much more falvourful and delicious.
- Adding lemon juice is optional.
- Adding two pinches of red chilli powder at the end makes it extra spicy and flavourful.
- Do not add too much water while tenderizing the meat. Since this prevents the meat from cooking fast.
- Be extra cautious while using a pressure cooker. Open the lid only when the steam has cooled down.
