Mysore Mutton Roast ( Restaurant Style)

Mysore Mutton Roast is a tasty and royal Indian dish. In Singapore Indian restaurants, it is a popular delicacy for functions and parties. All of us in my home love this mutton feast very much so I have tried to learn how to cook Mysore Mutton Roast in restaurant style. As usual I have added my own take of it too for my own satisfaction. 😉 🙂 Mysore Mutton Roast is a compound of Indian spices, that spices aroma really enrich the taste of mutton and its gravy. In this recipe I used a big amount of shallots and ginger to mask mutton’s raw smell and also increase its gravy’s taste. Before the gravy’s preparation, I pressure cook pre-marinated mutton to get a tender taste and use the same mutton’s essence for its gravy preparation instead of water. It turned out very well and I got an excellent taste similar to restaurant style. Mysore Mutton Roast is a thick gravy textured dish and a good combination with Naan, Chappathy or boiled rice. Try and enjoy this mutton feast with awesome flavors of Indian Spices, I am sure all non-vegetarian’s love this tender spicy taste very much 🙂

In this recipe I did not add water.You can get sufficient water from the pressure cook meat itself

It is a bit spicy preparation, you can adjust/reduce chilly powder and pepper powder as per your taste.

In this recipe, you can use big onions instead of shallots but shallots gives you a better taste and textured gravy

Try to use homemade meat spices powder and roasted cumin seed powder.It gives your dish an excellent taste.
