When nutritionists tell us to add more green to our diets, they may not mean this green mutton curry, but you know what, try it anyway. This is comfort food at its best and we’re sure it will feed your soul.
Green mutton curry or hariyali mutton curry is a delicious curry that gets its green colour from a mix of herbs like coriander and mint leaves and dry spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and pepper. It’s surprisingly easy to put together and will lift your spirits on a boring weekday.
Here are some tips to perfect your green mutton curry:
What cut of mutton to use?
Since this is a curry, choose a lamb or goat curry cut since this cut has bone-in pieces of mutton that are cut into similar sized pieces. Bone-in pieces are great since they add flavour to the curry while it’s cooking – it’s like making a stock while your curry is cooking! And since the pieces of a curry cut are similar in size, it ensures that they all cook uniformly.
If you need to thin out your green mutton curry, add hot water.
This is a pro tip for any meat curry. While it’s cooking, if you feel it’s too dry and you’d like a little more gravy, boil water separately and then add it to the pan. This will ensure the meat remains tender.
Once the curry is ready, let it rest for 10 minutes and serve it with steamed rice or laccha parathas. You could also serve kachumber on the side for something cooling.
