Tabak Maaz

Tabak Maaz (A kashmiri Delicacy):
I got this recipe from another food blog (shilpa cook book). I tried it and it came out very well. My husband loved it.

Mutton-1/2 kg
List 1:
Curds- 1/2 cup
Jeera Powder- 1 tsp
Coriander Powder- 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder- 2 tsp
Bay Leaf- 1
Cinnamon- 1inch piece
Cardamom- 2-3
Cloves- 2-3
Ginger Garlic paste- 3 tsp
Onion(paste)- 2 medium

Ghee- 3 TBsp
Onion- 1 Big
Green Chillies- 4-5

1. Mix all the ingredients on list 1 with mutton and 1/4 cup water and cook in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles.
2.Once done remove the mutton pieces and strain the liquid.
3.Wash the cooker and in the same cooker take 1 tbsp of ghee and fry the thinly chopped onion and green Chilies  until it turns slightly brown and make a paste.
4. Take another 2 Tbsp of ghee and fry the mutton pieces til they turn brown.
5. Add the onion paste and the strained liquid and cook for another 5 whistles.
6. If water content is still left can cook it for another few minutes till it becomes dry.

P.S. The name tabak maaz is apparently only used for when prepared with ribs.
