easy mutton kuzhambu recipe, mutton kulambu, south indian style lamb gravy
Today's recipe is Mutton Kuzhambu. I made this kuzhambu on Wednesday, clicked the pictures, edited it and even, put an announcement in my FB page but it has taken me 2 days just to sit and finish the post. This time I was not busy with anything, just the laziness that sets in because of the cold weather. We are all non- veg lovers at home, especially my daughter loves mutton. But I make it once in 2 weeks only, that is 2 times a month- it will be mutton Biryani, or mutton fry or this mutton kulambu. Only now it strikes, I haven't tried anything new with mutton. May be will try, test and then post. For now, enjoy this delicious kuzhambu.

Add the chopped tomatoes, ginger garlic paste and cook till tomatoes turn mushy.
Then add coriander powder, chilli powder and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Now add mutton, mix well,if needed add water, close the lid of the cooker and pressure cook till mutton is done.
Once the pressure is released, open the pressure cooker, add the coconut milk, check the consistency, adjust the salt and let it simmer in low flame for about 5-6 minutes.
Turn off the heat, garnish with chopped cilantro and serve it warm.
Adding peppercorns are optional, instead you can add pepper powder.
Adjust the spice level according to your taste.
Depending on the meat time taken in pressure cooker varies. If it is mutton it takes about 3-4 whistles while baby goat gets cooked faster. Also the type of pressure cooker too varies. So cook accordingly.
Also take care not to over cook the meat. If over cooked, meat becomes tough.
