Lightly chop the mutton pieces on both sides.

Cook the mutton in a heavy bottomed pan, over a low flame, till the mutton becomes soft and dry (about 30 – 40 minutes). Pour in 4 tablespoons of oil and brown the meat by stirring continuously on a medium flame. Cook till the onions are caramelized. Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves, check for seasoning and remove from flame. Garnish with deep fried potatoes and serve.
