Kolhapuri Mutton Sukhe

Here is another of Bhairavi's recipes. This recipe is a little time consuming but well worth the effort you put in.


Mutton/Lamb meat - 500-750 gms
Finely chopped large onions - 2
Finely chopped tomato - 1
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1tbsp
Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
Grated dried coconut - half
Sesame seeds - 2 tbsps
Poppy Seeds - 2 tbsps
Kolhapuri Masala - to taste
Finely chopped coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt - to taste


Heat oil in a large pan and slightly fry the curry leaves. Now fry the onions until they're brown. Next, add the ginger garlic paste and saute for a couple of minutes. Add tomato and fry until soft & pasty and the oil begins to leave the side.Now add the Kolhapuri masala (this masala is usually very spicy so you'll need to go easy on the quantity) and fry for a couple of minutes. Add salt. Add the pieces of lamb and stir to mix well with the masala. Cover and cook till the meat is tender. Stir from time to time to ensure that the meat is evenly cooked (I use slightly more oil so I can cook the meat without using water).
In a separate pan roast the coconut until it's brown. Remove from pan. Now roast the sesame seeds and the poppy seeds still they change colour slightly. Grind the coconut, poppy seeds and sesame seeds to a coarse consistency using a little water. When the meat is almost cooked add this paste to it and continue cooking until the meat is tender.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Mutton Sukhe goes very well with rice bhakri (tandalachi bhakri) and an chopped onion salad.
