Cooking Instructions

Heat oil in a heavy-based pot, add the chopped onions and fry the onions until golden brown.

Add salt, turmeric powder and red chilli powder and fry spices for 2-3 minutes by adding a little water at a time (to prevent from burning.)

Add the mutton and continuously stir until all of the water evaporates.

Add in the White Masoor. (not the water, the lentils only.) Add 2 glasses of warm fresh water to the lentils and mix. Cover pot on low heat and let the meat cook.
