Mutton Curry in A ClayPot – II


There’s nothing complicated about cooking in clay pots . Traditional clay cooking pots are used all over the world . Today I am bringing to you another recipe of Mutton Curry cooked in ClayPot on direct flame ..

Ingredients :

Mutton 1/2kg
Yogurt – 2 tbs
Onions 3 medium
Ginger Garlic paste 3tsp
Whole garam masala (Cloves 5-6, Black peppercorns 8-10, Green Cardamom 2-4, Black Cardamom 2, Cinnamon 1stick)
Whole Red Chilies 2
Red Chili Powder 2tsp
Coriander Powder 2tsp
Garam masala power 2 tsp
Oil or ghee 2 tbs
Salt to taste
Water 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves for garnishing


Heat oil / ghee in a clay pot .
Add whole garam masalas and whole red chilies and let it splutter for a minute. Now add finely chopped onions, salt and mutton .
Stir and mix well. Sauté for 8-10 minutes.
Now add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 5 minutes.
Add red chili powder, coriander powder and cumin powder.
Mix well and cook on medium slow flame for around 20-25 minutes till oil leaves the masala.
Now add ½ cup of water and bring to a boil .
Cook covered on medium low heat until the mutton is tender stirring a few times in between . It takes around 1 hr for the meat to get tender in a clay pot.
Once the mutton is tender , add garam masala powder and adjust the seasoning. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with roti , naan or any flatbread and steamed white rice ..



  1. What a beautiful and inviting spread you have there! I also thought mutton was an adult sheep. Do you think the flavour will change much in a Dutch oven? I know clay absorbs steam somewhat but I’m not sure of much else.
