Then add in the lamb mutton pieces and cook on a medium flame for 5-10 minutes as the meat starts to change colour and gives off water
Add 1/4th cup of water and leave the gravy to cook for 4-5 whistles or if cooking in a pan or gravy pot cover the lid tightly and leave to cook on the low gas flame for 30-40 minutes

If the gravy looks too runny, leave it to cook on low flame so the water evaporates
