As winter approaches we start getting fresh cauliflowers. I chanced upon one with leaves and before the vendor could hack the leaves away I bought it from him to cook a favorite winter mutton dish.
Mutton -1/2 kg
1 cauliflower with leaves
Ginger – 1tsp
garlic paste -1 heaped tbsp
1 onion finely sliced
Haldi -1 tsp
Dhania 1 tbsp
Mirch powder to taste
Salt to taste
Garam masala powder 1/2 tsp for sprinkling on top.
Mustard oil -3 tbsp ( you can use less)
Juice of 1 lemon
Cut the cauliflower leaves finely and break the florets
Wash & keep aside. Wash meat & keep aside. Trim the fat.
Heat oil till smell goes. Fry onions golden brown.
Add the ground & powder masalas and saute ( bhun na) till oil leaves sides. Keep adding dashes of water to prevent masala from getting burnt.
Add the meat and saute for few minutes.
Add the cauliflower & leaves.
Add 1/5 cup water to it and pressure cook. The leaves and meat leave water.
Pressure cook for 15-20 minutes depending on long meat takes to become tender.
When steam evaporates, open and dry the remains of water.
Take out in serving dish
Squeeze the lemon juice on top Sprinkle garam masala.
Serve hot with chapati.
