Recipe Notes

If you are cooking it in a pressure cooker, don’t add water. Keep the
marinated mutton along with the shallot masala in the cooker, close it and keep it in a low flame and cook for 1 whistle.

If you are cooking it in a pan/kadai, add required quantity of water and cook it on a medium flame for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or till the meat is cooked well.

Make sure there is enough water till it is done.
