Wash the mutton pieces,to that add turmeric powder & ginger garlic paste & mix well together & cook this in a pressure cooker for 4 to 5 whistles & 5 mins in simmer flame . Keep it aside.( Instead of cooking the mutton in a pressure cooker ,we can cook it directly also in a pan by adding all the ingedients to it ,but the mutton takes more time to cook .it will be easy if we cook in pressure cooker).
Heat oil in a pan/skillet ,add cinnamon, cardamon,cloves,bayleaves, fennel seeds(sombu) fry for 1 min. Now add all the dry red chillies followed by 1 tsp pepper powder
(depends on ur spicy taste u can add more or less chillies) ,allow it to fry .Now add the chopped onions ,ginger garlic paste ,curry leaves & fry till the onion turns translucent .Now add the cooked mutton pieces ,salt,1tsp pepper powder & stir all together ,so that the masalas mix well with the mutton pieces,instead of adding little water ,add the mutton soup & cook .Close tha pan with a lid & cook well for about 8 to 10 mins in a low flame .Often give a stir & check for salt & spicy ,if want more spicy add pepper powder & mix well.Garnish it with coriwnder leaves & curry leaves . Hot & spicy mutton uppukari is ready to serve. This goes well with sambar saatham ,curd rice, chapathi & goes on.....very easy hot mutton curry .....
