Mutton kata masala

Recipe by Khuserv of Jeddah, SA

This is how my family makes it & I would like to share it with you. The spices in this dish have to be whole and that is what gives the meat is extinguish taste.

Ingredients non vegetarian 6 servings

    • 1/2 kg mutton cut into 2 inch cubes.
    • 2 tbsp whole black pepper
    • 6-8 whole dry red chili cut into cubes
    • 3 cloves
    • 7-8 cinnamon
    • 2 cinnamon sticks.
    • 12 cloves of garlic each clove cut into 4 halves
    • 2 tbsp ginger cut into thick strips (like for Nihari0.
    • 2 tsp salt.
    • 2 tbsp ghee
    • 2 c warm water. 


    1. In a pot combine all the above ingredients, put over fire & bring to the boil.
    2. Lower the heat cook for 1 1/2 hour until mutton is nice and tender.
    3. Dry out all the water.
    4. Serve hot with dal and chawal.



    Khuserv, The preparation appears to be, what can be termed as 'Majaboot' and Mongalai type, which I like very much. I am about to make it and trust that it will taste fantastic. I think that, what you have mentioned by mistake as, '7-8 cinnamon', should be actually, '7-8 Cardamom(Ilaichi)'.


    This was excellent my non veg friends loved it. Thank you.


    Thank you Khuserv my mum really liked the recipe as it does not take much effort and has a different flavour then normal curries.
