Hariyali Mutton Pepper Masala (Green Mutton Pepper Curry)

Hariyali mutton pepper masala is a flavorful mutton delicacy cooked with freshly ground spices and green herb paste. A perfect blend of coriander leaves, mint leaves, green chillies and aromatic dry roasted spices makes this hariyali gosht a fabulous dish packed with flavor and amazing texture.

This hariyali mutton can be served as a appetizer/starter or serve it with any flatbread or rice.

Hariyali means green. This recipe has a green paste made with a mixture of three herbs – coriander leaves, mint leaves and green chillies and hence the name hariyali meaning green. The dark greenish tint comes from this herb paste. It also imparts a lovely aroma to the dish.

The mutton pieces are marinated with few basic spice powders. Then the marinated mutton is cooked with onion, dry roasted and ground spices and green herb paste. The dish turns out into a flavorful, aromatic and succulent mutton with thick masala base.

You can make this masala base into a curry by adding water as per your gravy requirement. Both ways turns out so well and equally delicious.
