Dry and spicy stir fried boneless mutton recipe for all the meat lovers. You can serve it as a snack or a side dish with naans / rotis / phulkas. I am sure you will love this preparation. I have pressure cooked the mutton first and then sauteed with onion and spices as the meat here doesn't cook so easily. In India you get tender meat and you can make this directly on a slow fire sprinkling a little water in between the sauteing. You may also use meat with bones if you like.

Boneless mutton ... 250 gms
Onion .................. 1 medium sized chopped finely.
Garlic ............. 1 tbsp crushed
Ginger ........... 1 inch piece grated.
Tomato puree ... 2 tbsps
Yogurt .............. 2 tbsps
Mint leaves ..... few 
Coriander leaves .. handful
Green chillies ... 1-2 slit or chopped finely.

Garam masala powder .. 1/2 tsp
Salt .............. to taste
Oil or  Desi ghee .. 2-3 tbsps or as needed
* Whole spices like cinnamon stick, bay leaves and cardamoms ... add in the pressure cooker while boiling the meat.

1. In a pressure cooker take 2-3 cups water and tip in  the whole spices*. Add the cleaned meat pieces, a little salt and turmeric. Boil the meat until 3/4 th done. Remove the pieces and store the stock for future use. You can even freeze it after cooling. 
2. In a pan or a wok add oil or desi ghee and fry the onion until light pink. 
3 .Add the slit green chillies, ginger and garlic. saute for half a minute.
