Spicy pepper paya (mutton trotters curry)



Hello all... I am back after a long time... I was kind of held up with other things in my life... But now its time to publish some healthy dishes by which i try to reach all your hearts... 

Paya is one dish that i adore all the time, my mom makes it jus like the regular mutton kurma but there is a final touch which gives this dish a very unique twist and taste... Not only that the method my mom makes it is different... Lets see it in the recipe.. Paya is a very highly nutritious dish and i would say including this regularly in your menu will give loads of goodness...


INGREDIENTS 

FOR THE BROTH:

Mutton trotters  1 set

Turmeric powder 1 tsp

Salt 1 tsp

Water 4-6 cups


FOR THE KURMA:

Onion 2 medium 

Tomatoes 2 medium

Ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp

Chilli powder 2 tbsp

Corriander powder 2 tbsp

Turmeric powder 1 tsp

Salt to taste


FOR GRINDING:

Coconut scrapping 5 tbsp

Pepper corns 2 - 3 tbsp (adjust to your tolerance) 

Corriander seeds 2 tbsp

Garlic 1 whole head peeled


FOR  TEMPERING:

Oil 3 tbsp

Garam masala powder 2 tsp

Curry leaves few


METHOD:

Broth:

I start cooking the trotters (with all the ingredients listed below the broth section)  the previous day in the pressure cooker,  3 times in a day, each time i cook it for 5-6 whistles. In the night i leave it in the fridge. 

This brings out all the nutrition in the bones in to the curry and makes the bones soft and chewable. 

Kurma:

Chop the onions and tomatoes. 

Add all the ingredients in the kurma section into the broth we prepared the previous day. If you find the broth is less you can add some water to it.

After adding it again cook it for another 3-4 whistles in your pressure cooker for the last time. 

Grinding:

Meanwhile the kurma is cooking dry roast and grind all the ingredients in grinding section to a fine paste and keep aside.

When the pressure comes down in the cooker open the cooker and add the ground paste to it and bring the kurma to a boil. 

Tempering:

Heat the oil in a pan and once hot add all the ingredients for tempering and pour it in to the kurma.

The spicy pepper paya is ready to serve. This can be served with rice, roti or idly n dosa...

Hope you enjoy the dish ♥️
