Method to cook Bhojwar Mutton

In a pressure cooker heat the oil and add the sliced onions

Sauté till they turn light brown. Empty the onions out in a large blender jar, ready to be blended along with the other dry ingredients

In a flat pan, dry roast the ingredients mentioned above for the Bhojwar masala including coriander seeds, dry coconut, peanuts, red chillies and cashews on a low flame

As the ingredients start to crackle giving off a pleasant aroma, switch off the flame and add in the roasted onion peels

Now transfer the toasted ingredients into a mixer jar

Next add in the salt, ginger garlic paste, turmeric and chilli powder to the mixer jar along with half a cup of water and blend all the ingredients together to a fine paste

Now using the same oil as used to fry the onions, fry the meat pieces till they turn light brown

Once the lamb pieces are well fried, add the blended mixture and give the resulting gravy a good mix

Leave the gravy to cook for 5-6 whistles on medium flame and then switch off the stove

Once the pressure cooker cools down, open the lid and add the curry leaves to cook in the oil that has risen to the surface

Cook on low flame for the next 5 minutes before switching off the flame

Serve this unique authentic style gravy with rotis (flatbread) or flavoured rice
