Mansa Kasa (Mutton kasa)

Cooking Time Required: 1 hour (will vary with the quality of mutton)

Ingredients: Mutton ( 500 gm), onion ( 2 nos, medium), potato ( 1 large ), tomato ( 1
medium), green chilli ( 2 nos ), ginger garlic paste ( 2 tsp), cumin-mustard seeds ( 1/3 tsp), coriander powder ( 2/3 tsp), cumin powder (1/3 tsp), chilli powder (1/3 tsp), garam masala ( 1/4 tsp), mustard oil ( 2 tsp ), oil (5-6 tsp), turmeric, salt to taste.

Preparation: Wash the mutton thouroughly. Drain excess water . Add salt, turmeric and one tsp mustard oil. Keep aside to marinate for one hour.

Cut the potato along its length into four pieces. Heat a pan. Add one tsp oil and the potato pieces. Fry till the potato turns light brown.

Grate half an onion and cut the rest into small pieces.

Cooking: Heat 4 tsp oil in a kadai (wok). When it starts smoking, add the green chilli, cumin and mustard seeds. When the seeds start spluttering, add the grated onion. Stir fry for two minutes, and add the onion pieces. When the onion turns pinkish red, add the ginger garlic paste. Stir till the raw smell of ginger garlic goes away. Then add the mutton fat (charbi) and cook for 5 minutes.

Cut the tomatoes into small pieces and add to the wok along with coriander and cumin powder. Stir for 2-3 minutes and then add the mutton. Cook for another 20 minutes while stirring at regular intervals. The mutton should start to darken in color. Transfer the contents of the wok into a pressure cooker along with the fried potatoes and add garam masala. Add about 1/4 cup water. Cook for 10-15 minutes on low flame.

Remove from fire and allow steam to escape. The mutton should be tender. In case it is still not done, cook for another 5 minutes with the lid closed.

Enjoy hot with rice or rotis.
