Eid ul-Fitr, the festival marking the end of the fasting month of Ramzan will be celebrated across India on August 9.

Here are two delicious traditional mutton specialities from Shabbeer Selod.

First up we have this Mutton Muthia preparation:

  • 500 gm mutton kheema, washed well
  • 4 medium sized onions
  • 2 tbsp garlic, ginger and green chillies ground together
  • 2 tsp lavang, elaichi, dalchini, finely powdered
  • 2 tsp jeera, coarsely powdered
  • 1 tbsp besan or corn flour (as a binder)
  • 500 gm tomato puree
  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying

Method:

  • Slice two onions and make birasta (fry until crisp light brown). Remove from oil (do not allow to burn) and dry on paper towel. Grind birasta to a paste.
  • Grate the other two onions, apply a little salt, leave for half an hour and then squeeze out water.
  • In a bowl add kheema, birasta, grated onion, garam masala, jeera, salt and besan. Mix thoroughly, and keep for one hour.

  • Bring tomato puree to a boil .
