Mutton Kuzhambu is one of my mom’s favorite kuzhambu. She used to prepare this more often, when I am a kid. Also there are many variations in preparing this Kuzhambu and I feel this method is as simple as that and mostly useful for the bachelors and beginners.

  5. Cook for 5 whistles. (If the mutton is not tendor, cook for some more whistles. Also no. of whistles depends on the type of cooker)
  6. When the mutton is well cooked, you can take that water for Mutton Soup. But you can leave it as it is, so that our kuzhambu would be more tastier. (If you are taking the water out, then in another pan, repeat the steps from first to till you saute the tomato and add water),
  7. Transfer the contents in the kadai and add the chilli powder, coriander powder and allow the mutton to cook again.
  8. If you want to add the Coconut milk, it can be added to the mutton kuzhambu. It makes the kuzhambu tastier and thicker.
