Mutton Do Pyaza or Ghost Do Pyaza Recipe is a mutton or lamb fry made with a lot of onions in it. Hence the name Mutton Do Pyaza.
This Mutton Do Pyaza or Ghost Do Pyaza Recipe calls for onions to be used in two batches. Once when you fry it in initial stages and second, when you add the onions in the end to give that crunchy flavor.
How to buy mutton:
- Check the color of the meat. If it is darker, it means that it is older. The lighter the color the younger the breed and fresher it is.
- Never buy packaged meat as most of the times, it contains preservatives and you will never know the freshness of the mutton. Always try to buy fresh meat.
- Every area has it’s own breed of sheep/lamb/goat. Try buying local meat or at least if it was slaughtered locally.
- Another factor to consider is the amount of fat in the mutton.
Types of lamb cuts to choose from:
Based on your personal preference you can choose any kind of mutton that suits you.
As my mutton/lamb pieces were very tender, I have cooked them without the use of a pressure cooker. But if your mutton / lamb pieces are not so tender or if you want to save some time, then feel free to use the pressure cooker if you wish.
But whenever you can, try to cook the mutton without the use of a pressure cooker. The taste is simply amazing when you cook on low heat in a pan. Apart from the taste, you will find that the mutton pieces will be intact and not overcooked.
The Mutton Do Pyaza or Ghost Do Pyaza Recipe, does not require a lot of ingredient list, but rather the main ingredient is the onion and more importantly is the method used for making this dish.
