In this recipe I haven't used curd( yogurt) to marinate the mutton ( lamb) pieces. You can used it but use a low sour curd. 

As in mutton masala recipe we use tomato, so it can make the gravy more sour. So I prefer to use any one of them while making this recipe. If you like to cook them in slow cooking then it is better to use curd to marinate them.

As you know that mutton pieces needs more time to cook to become soft and tender. Slow cooking is a traditional method for this and it may take more than two hours.

So I love to cook mutton in a pressure cooker to save time. Pressure cooking is a quick and easy method to make a good and taste mutton masala curry recipe at home.

In pressure cooking method it need only 30 minutes to make a soft and tender mutton masala.

  • You can cook the mutton masala in slow cooking but it will take more times to cook properly.
  • I prefer to cook mutton in a pressure cooker as it gives perfectly cooked soft and juicy pieces.
  • You can use curd in the marination as well but don't use a sour curd. As we are using tomato so the gravy may become more tangy.
