Wash mutton in clean running water and keep aside.
Heat oil in a wok and fry potatoes till golden. Collect them aside.
Now add dry red chilies, bay leaf, cinnamon stick and cloves in the oil.
Add minced onion and fry till raw smell goes off.
Now add in the ginger paste and the garlic paste and fry till brown in color and oil starts oozing.
Add in the mutton pieces long with some turmeric powder and salt. Mix all and cook on high flames till all the moisture from the mutton evaporates.
Meanwhile take curd in a bowl and add red chili powder, garam masala powder, black pepper powder. Mix well and keep aside.
When the mutton is dry add chopped tomatoes and curd mix. Combine and cook on high flame for a minute. Simmer the gas flames, close the lid and let the mutton cook for 30 mins till the color changes and oil starts leaving the sides.
Check salt and once the masala is ready, add around 1/2 a cup of warm water to make a thick gravy. Put the gas flame back on high and wait for the gravy to come to a boil.
Close the lid again and simmer the gas and let the mutton cook till it’s tender. This might take 20-30 mins again depending on the quality of the meat so keep checking in intervals.
Once the mutton is done, add fried potatoes and cook for another 5-6 mins till the potatoes are done.
Sprinkle sugar, add chopped coriander and serve hot with luchi or rice.
