How to Make Watermelon Mutton

  • Heat half the quantity of oil and put the mutton pieces and salt to taste.

  • Lower the heat and mix in the ginger- garlic paste.
  • Stir gently and mix in salt to taste.
  • Now, mix in the fried onion paste and stir fry for another 2 mins.
  • Mix in the tomato puree and all the spices.
  • Stir fry for 2-3 mins more.
  • Add the melon juice and the remaining oil and continue to cook on low fire so that the melon juice is absorbed in the mutton.
  • Cover with a lid while doing so that the mutton pieces become tender.
  • In case the mutton is still undercooked, place in a pressure cooker with 1 and half cups of water and cook for the mutton to become tender. Check for the salt.
  • Garnish with watermelon pieces and serve with rotis.
