Among the different types of non-vegetarian delicacies across India, mutton curries enjoy a huge fan following. Be it the classic Kashmiri rogan josh, Rajasthani lal maas, or Andhra-style gongura mamsam, these mouth-watering dishes always make our mouths water. Since these curries are so popular, you'll often find people experimenting with them in their own unique way. For example, the ones you get at a restaurant are delicately flavoured and presented in a more elaborate manner. On the other hand, dhaba-style mutton curries are more robust and served in traditional thalis.

First, we need to clean and wash the mutton nicely. Drain the water and marinate it with red chilli powder, haldi, yoghurt, and salt. Keep aside for 20-30 minutes. Once done, add the marinated mutton to the pressure cooker.
Now, add oil, haldi, red chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, and garam masala. Mix well. Add half cup water and cook until the mutton is tender. Set aside. Next, heat oil in a pan. Add cumin, garlic cloves, red chillies, and curry leaves, and allow them to splutter. Add onions and cook until they turn golden brown in colour.
