Ramadaan Kareem - Mutton Sukka Masala (Dry Curry)

Today night starts the holy month of Ramadaan this year. Ramadaan Kareem to everybody. May this blessed month bring to you all the blessings, forgiveness and prosperity to you and your loved ones.

Our standard menu for suhur like lunch menu on any other day and dinner has breakfast items. For Iftar we normally have Nonbu kanji, Bajji's or pakoras or similar item, rose milk, some sweet variety, Fresh fruits and fruit juice. I will be posting my recipes soon. Today I am starting with a dry mutton curry. The pieces are well cooked, spicy, and keep upto four days in the fridge. And my hubby dosen't mind having this everyday for three days in a row. So for the first few days of Ramadaan when my body is adapting to the changed schedules, it is a great recipe for me.



This is a dry curry, great as a side dish for plain rice and curry or as a filling for chappatis, naan, khubz etc..It is a standard first suhur dish for each ramadaan in my house as it is difficult to have an apetite for the first few days till our bodies get used to eating before sunrise. Such spicy dishes help to get the rest of the food inside. Nowadays experts are recommending that people should have a light suhur, light iftar etc. It is not practical in our family as my Husband is a hard working man and needs the energy to work through out the day on one meal. Inspite of our diet we always loose around four kg of weight every ramadaan. It may be different for you, so take care during ramadaan and keep an eye on the calories consumed. Drink a lot of water to rehydrate your body after iftar.

Ingredients:

Mutton - 1/2 kg cut into 1 inch cubes
Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tbsp
Salt - 2 tsp or to taste
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Pepper Jeera Powder - 1 tsp
Chilli Powder - 2-3 tsp
Sesame Oil - 3 tbsp
Coconut oil - 2 tbsp

Mix all the items except coconut oil and put in a pressure cooker. Add 1/4 cup of water and cook till done. Open the cooker, Check for salt and chilli level. If required add more at this stage.Let it simmer till all the liquid is dried up. Add coconut oil and stir to mix well and remove from heat.
