Now add the onions and saute them well until the onions turn golden brown for the extra flavour. Now add 1/2 tsp Turmeric, Garam Masala, Maggi cube and give it all a nice stir.

  3. Now add all the mixed vegetables in the cooker mix it well with the masala, then add the mutton along with broth, give it a stir. Add vinegar and 1 & 1/2 tbsp chopped coriander. Add salt as per taste. Add Rava to the stew to make the curry little thick, give it a nice stir, cover with lid and cook it for 1 more whistle.

  4. Your Mutton Stew is now ready, garnish with the remaining chopped coriander and serve it with some steam rice or fugiyas (East Indian Hand bread/Balloon Bread recipe to be out soon)
