  1. Heat a big pressure cooker till adequately hot and then put in 3 tbsp of the oil.
  2. To this, add the cinnamon and cloves; minced onions; crushed ginger, garlic, and green chili; and cook till the onions are golden
  3. Now put in the tomatoes and mix well – once it all comes together, put in the mutton pieces and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes
  4. Now, put in salt to taste and add some water (about 1/2 cup) and cover the cooked and set the whistle. If your cooker takes about 4 whistles to cook mutton, cook this batch for two whistles
  5. Once that is done, take off the lid and put in the soaked dal – for 1.5 cups of dal, add about 2.5 cups of water, put in the turmeric powder and mix. Now cover the cooker and cook this entire mixture for 3 more whistles.
  6. Once that is done, mix it all together till the dal disintegrates and blends in with the masalas and adjust the salt. Then add the kokum.
  7. In a separate tempering pan, put in the ghee and the remaining 1 tbsp of oil, add the mustard seeds, let them splutter, then add cumin seeds, curry leaves, and minced garlic. Once the garlic is golden, turn off the gas, add the chili powder and pour this into the dal. Mix well and turn off the gas. Garnish with the garam masala powder and chopped coriander and mint.
  8. Serve with hot plain steamed rice
