looks like an easy recipe, btw can this be tried on lamb? also does the mint and corriander need to be a paste or just chopped?jhilmil

JM, Can be tried with lamb for sure, just marinate a little longer. Definitely grind mint and coriander leaves with the yoghurt and other marinade ingredients. Somehow chopping it even finely just doesn't do the trick. Let me know how it turned out. :-)

Ria you are the Saviour of bhookhe aatmas such as myself !!! This is a great blog & I'm actually going to try & make every single dish. You know what I remember the most is that marrow scooper that Suneela would give me in Golflinks. I need a marrow-scooper !!!

may I suggest...
Stir the mutton in the pressure cooker for about 20-30 minutes and when it is half cooked then pressure cook it for 2 whistles. Taste the difference.
Pour yourself a glass of wine before you start for those 30 minutes can be rather boring and if you still have some wine left in your glass...empty it in the pressure cooker. cheers
