In a bowl, take the mutton and add curd, ginger-garlic, lime juice, chaat masala, coriander powder, garam masala, mace powder, and chopped green chilies one by one.
Mix everything well, now add oil and salt and crushed onions and mix lightly.
Let this marinate for at least 30 mins or for 2 hours for best results. Cover and put in the fridge to marinate.
Now heat a non-stick tawa and add the marinated mutton to it.
Keep the flame in high and cook the mutton for 3-5 minutes in high flame.
Now add a little bit of water and mix properly. Keep the flame on low and let this cook for 30-45 minutes.
Check once in between to see if the mutton is soft and cooked.
After around 40 minutes, turn off the heat, garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot.

Recipe Notes

If you are using a pan that is not non-stick, keep stirring continuously when cooking in high flame so the masala doesn’t stick to the bottom or burn.
