Mutton Fry ~ Mutton Vepudu!

We went out for burgers for dinner, with the hope that the kids would enjoy at the Kids corner that's there in the restaurant. And did they play? they refused to get back home. Athamma didn't join us as she is still recovering, but its much better. stitches are removed but the bone is yet to join back. So it was just us for the outing. The kids were so excited on going out, you might think we don't take them anywhere. They go on a bike ride atleast some 3 times in a day, be it morning or even as late as 10 in the night. Still we enjoyed seeing their enthu.

The Kids play space had two riders, a toy car and a house that had few kids chairs. Peddu wanted me to get into the house, I was trying to feed him and he was running around the place. Chinnu refused to eat, so my target was Peddu. He made sure I ran around to feed him. He went into the doll house saying "Jolly, the house is nice". We were quite surprised at him using the word Jolly. He wanted me to enter the house, I told him its quite small for me. He was looking surprised for that!

Thanks to her friends Mom, our little madam is busy these days trying her hand at Stitching. I must remember to thank her friends Mom for coming out with such a brilliant idea to keep the girls engaged. Her friend K, is a year older than her and they are always together during the weekends. If I remember correctly, this is the first summer they are at home. Normally she leaves to her granny's place for Summer. Konda somehow forgot to discuss her birthday. She normally takes toffees to her school friends during April. This is the first year we completely forgot about it! When I remembered, I was feeling so awful. It was almost like my lil one has grown out of her childhood. Of course not, atleast I hope so!


Mutton fry,Mutton roast


Coming to today's recipe this is something I made many days ago. I haven't got around making anything new, so this is from my draft and it was good that I had it all typed as I had already shared it for a reader. So guess I am now sharing with the rest!

Ingredients Needed:

Mutton - 250 gms
Onions - 1 medium
Green Chillies - 2 medium
Curry leaves 5-6
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder a pinch
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Cashewnut powder - 1/2 tsp (opt)
Crushed peppercorns - 2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tsp

Method to prepare:

Wash Mutton and chop into medium sized chunks.

Pressure cook the mutton with 1/4 tsp of ginger garlic paste, a pinch of salt, turmeric powder along with 1 cup of water. Pressure cook till the mutton is well cooked and tender. Drain the stock from the mutton.

Heat a pan with oil, sauté chopped onions, green chillies, curry leaves, then add the remaining ginger garlic paste, Fry for 2 0 3 mins, till everything gets done.

Mutton Vepudu

Then add the cooked mutton pieces, add all the spice powder except peppercorns. Combine everything well and cook it covered under sim for 5 mins.

Remove the lid and sauté well. By now the spices are well coated. Sprinkle in freshly ground peppercorns. Mix well. It gets done in 5 mins time after adding the peppercorns.

Note: I used the stock from this cooked mutton to the rice. You can make soup with it. Peppercorns have to be freshly ground and it should be coarse, not too fine not too coarse.

The taste of the fresh pepper along with curry leaves gives a heady taste!

Hope you make this and enjoy!

Seems very simple and delicious, infact the moment I saw the pictures I realized am feeling hungry... Kids are really difficult to understand sometimes very weird too, once we were guests at a distant relatives place, we told them that we had our share of snacks and tea at home but my nephew walked to them asking for a glass of milk, which he refused to take milk at home... ;)

I have to admit I have never cooked mutton. My mother used to make mutton dishes (including mutton cutlets) when we were kids, but later stopped buying the meat. This recipe sounds simple and the dish looks delicious... hope I can give a try soon:-)
