Mutton Curry With Asafoetida


Hello and welcome everyone to my little cooking corner. Today I am sharing a recipe of mutton curry with a tempering of asafoetida. We usually make nonvegetarian dishes using ginger-garlic but here I have used an equally interesting ingredient, asafoetida as it is good for digestion and gives a very authentic taste to the curry. It is a flavourful preparation which can be tried on weekends and I hope you guys will like it. So let’s start with the recipe—


  1. Mutton-1/2 kg
  2. Onions-5
  3. Curd-100 gm
  4. Asafoetida-1/4 tsp
  5. Ginger Paste-1/2 tsp
  6. Salt-According to taste
  7. Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
  8. Red Chilly Powder-2 tsp
  9. Coriander Powder-2 tsp
  10. Cumin Powder-1 tsp
  11. Mutton Masala-2 tsp
  12. Garam Masala-2 tsp
  13. Fresh Cilantro-For Garnish(optional)

For the tempering:

  1. Cumin-1 tsp
  2. BayLeaf-1
  3. Vegetable Oil-2 tbsp
  4. Cinnamon-1 small stick
  5. Cardamom-2
  6. Kasuri Methi-1 tsp


Step 1

Step 2

Take a kadhai and add the tempering ingredients excluding cinnamon and cardamom. When cumin splutters add the marinated mutton and cook on medium flame for fifteen minutes. Cook it till half done.

Step 3

Now transfer the semi-cooked mutton in a pressure cooker and adding enough water cook it till completely done. You may garnish it with freshly chopped cilantro or fresh cream.
