dry red chili powder - 1 tsp

chopped onion - 100 gm

cumin powder - 1 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
green chili - 2 or 3

Seven spices (cinnamon, cardamom, Shahi jeera, Shahi marich, kebab chini, mace, clove) - 1 tsp
bay leaf - 2

How to make - 
Step 1
Mutton is not soft like chicken. So marinate the meat with tenderizer for 6-7 hrs before cooking.
Here, I used raw papaya paste to tender the mutton.

Step 2
After 6-7 hours of tenderizing, marinate the meat with onion paste, garlic paste, ginger paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt, garam masala powder, plain yogurt, mustard oil. Mix all these together and keep marinated for an hour.

Step 3
Heat oil in a pan. Add bay leaf, seven spices - saute a little.
Next add, chopped onion, tomato, cumin powder, coriander powder, paprika and marinated mutton. Mix well.
You may add 2-3 green chilies for extra spicy taste. Now cover and cook in simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 4
Uncover after 30-35 minutes. Check the tenderness of cooked mutton. When you see meat gets easily separated from bones then you know, your MUTTON KASHA got perfectly done!
Sprinkle little roasted cumin & fennel seed powder for nice flavor and taste! Keep covered for 5 min so that meat absorbs its flavor.

Your MUTTON KASHA is ready! 
Serve with Naan, Chapati, Rice or anything you like!
