Method

 
In a blender make three separate pastes; One of the onions, one of the tomatoes and another of the garlic, ginger and chilli.
Set aside.

In a deep pot heat the oil and when hot add the bay Leaves, peppercorns, star anise, cloves, cardamom pods and cinnamon. Fry for 3 minutes to release the flavours.

Next add your onion and tomato pastes, mix well and fry for 10 – 15 minutes.

Once cooked, add the garlic, ginger and chilli paste and cook for 10 minutes.

When the base pastes are well cooked, add the turmeric, Cumin, sea salt, garam masala, ground almond, ground chilli and ground coriander. Mix well and cook until the oil separates from the sauce.

Add the mutton and coat well with the sauce.

After 5 minutes add the yoghurt and 1.5 cups of water (or more if necessary).

Stir well and cook with the lid on for 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally.

Serve with basmati Rice, chapatti or roti.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
