How to Make Hyderabadi Pasinday

Wash the boneless mutton pieces and transfer them to a big bowl. Drain water completely. Now add raw papaya paste, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric and salt to the meat. Mix it well and keep it aside to marinate.
In a pan, dry roast chironji on low heat. In the meantime, deep fry the sliced onion slices in a hollow kadhai. Once it’s done, allow it to cool. Now take a mixer and add dry roasted chironji, fried onions, soaked almonds, grated coconut, lemon juice and cashews into a fine paste.
Take whisked yoghurt and add the roasted chironji paste to it. Mix well so that all the ingredients are combined well.
In a hollow pan, take some oil and add marinated mutton in it. Cook it until its flesh is tender. You can also use a pressure cooker to cook the mutton. Just give it 6 whistles or less (depending on the quality of the meat.)
Once the mutton is cooked, add the ground masala paste to it and mix well. Make sure to keep the gas burner on low, before adding green slit chillies.
Mix all the ingredients well until the raw masala smell disappears completely. At this point, you can add water to the mutton as per your requirement. If you do so, add salt and other spices to adjust the taste. Simmer and let it cook for 5-7 minutes.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves, and your Hyderabadi Pasinday are ready to serve!
