Mutton Kuruma, Easy Mutton Kurma Recipe with Coconut

mutton-kurma-recipe-korma

This is a very easy mutton kurma that can be put together in minutes. The addition of coconut makes the kurma very rich. I like to use both green chillies and red chilli powder for this recipe. It adds a nice flavour. Here is how to do mutton kurma Tamilnadu style.

Take all the ingredients listed under “for the pressure cooker” in the ingredients list and add it to the cooker. Cover the pan and cook on medium flame for 20 minutes (about 15 whistles). Remove from heat and wait for the pressure to release.

In the mean time, grind coconut, cashews and tamarind with a cup of water. Soak the tamarind for 20 minutes before grinding. Grind to a smooth paste. Set aside.

Once the pressure releases, open the pan and put it on simmer. Add in the paste and simmer for 10 minutes.

        Hello, Ms Suguna I have the same query. No oil to be added in pressure cooker to saute and cook mutton?
        No other masala too, not even saunf?
        Amazing, trying it right now.

  1. I am a big fan of your ambur style briyani. I always wonder how your recipes turn out well without sauteing!!! TOday I am going to try this one πŸ™‚

  2. Taste was good. I couldn’t accept pulippu in the gravy mentally. Whats the purpose of it?. I am going to try without tamarind next time. Otherwise it was nice






  3. Cooked the Mutton Biriyani – Pressure Cooker Style and the Goat Kuruma – Biriyani turned out amazing!. Great recipes. Thanks. Next on my list is the Ragi Pakoda!

  4. This recipe didn’t turn out so well for me, but I cannot fault the recipe for that exactly. The coconut I bought turned out to be rancid so I used coconut milk instead (about 200 ml of store-bought canned coconut milk). I reduced the water in the final step to half a cup (that is 125 ml). The curry is now too thin and doesn’t taste of much.

    Is coconut milk not a substitute for coconut in this instance?

  5. hello mam , i tried the recipe of kongunadu chicken and coimbatore biryani , biryani turned out yummy .. i made mistake somewhere in curry . for mutton kurma posted recently … what will be the measure for ingredients for 1kg mutton.. kindly help out
