Saute for a minute and add meat( ½ kg goat meat). Saute well till oil separates. Add haldi, salt, 1 tbsp dhania powder and a paste of red chilli( 2-3 soaked red chillies ground to a fine paste). Stir and saute the mix for a minute or two. Add curd( 2 tbsp) and cook covered on low fire for 2-3 mins. Add 3-4 tbsp of tomato puree. Saute for 2-3 mins. Add a few spoons of water and close the lid. Pressure cook on high flame for one whistle and then cook on sim for another 10 mins till meat is well done. Switch off and allow to cool normally for opening the lid. Flavour with ½ tsp garam masala powder. Consistency will be dry, with gravy just coating the mutton pieces.
