Maati Handi Mutton (ମାଟି ହାଣ୍ଡି ଖାସି ମାଂସ)

Maati Handi Mutton (Odia: ମାଟି ହାଣ୍ଡି ଖାସି ମାଂସ) is a traditional method of cooking mutton curry. It was the method of cooking before the invention of the pressure cooker.

About the Recipe:

The use of a pressure cooker is avoided in this dish, and the mutton is left to simmer in an earthen pot for an extended period of time, allowing the healthiness and finer scent of the clay pot to be absorbed into the mutton.

Cooking Process:

To begin, marinate the mutton in a mixture of turmeric powder, salt, and a small amount of mustard oil. Mix everything together thoroughly and set it aside.

Place the Clay Pot (Mati Handi) on the fire. Let's start the cooking. Stir in the Tej Patta and dried red chilies after adding the mustard oil to the pot.

After that, add the chopped onion and cook until it is translucent. When the onion is golden brown, add the ginger and garlic paste and continue to sauté.

Toss in a pinch of turmeric powder and a pinch of chili powder. Let's add the marinated mutton to the saucepan and give it a good swirl. If you're adding the potato, do it now and cook for a few minutes. Season with salt to taste. Add a little water to it now and let it to boil and simmer on low heat.

It's crucial to cook it for a long period, perhaps an hour or more, depending on the quality of your mutton. Cover the pot and set it on the heat to finish cooking.

Remove the cover a few times and mix a bit in between. Add Garam Masala to the saucepan once the mutton chunks are fully cooked. If you want additional gravy, you can add extra water to it as needed. Your 'Mati Handi Mansa' is currently being prepared. It goes well with Rice, Mudhi, or Roti.
