First cook mutton in a pressure cooker with ginger-garlic paste, sliced onions, salt and turmeric powder. Then dry roast whole spices like cloves, cinnamon, black peppercorns, bay leaves and star anise. When the spices cool down, put them all in a grinder along with some roasted dry coconut. Also roast some cumin seeds and add to the grinder. Toss in some chopped onions and grind everything well to make masala.
Now, make gravy. Heat some oil, add the ground masala, and spice powders -garam masala, coriander powder and lots of red chilli powder to give it a bright red colour. Add some water, cooked mutton along with mutton stock, and your Kolhapuri Tambda Rassa is ready!
Enjoy this delicious mutton curry!
