Mutton Xacuti

Mutton Xacuti

Its been so long since we had the Chicken Xacuti recipe up, but recently I wanted to make Mutton Xacuti. Since I don’t live with my Mum, I called her and asked her if it was the same procedure as the Chicken Xacuti .

Although it was, there are a few additional things that need to be done, I managed to make some yummy Mutton Xacuti, and here’s how we got it done. All the ingredients are the same, except you replace the mutton with the chicken.

Xacuti Masala Ingredients:

Mutton shakuti masala ingredients

6 Red Chillies (Kashmiri Chillies)
1/2 Scraped Coconut
2 Teaspoon of Cloves
1 Teaspoon Haldi Powder
8 Pepper Corns
1 Teaspoon Jeera
1/4 Teaspoon Methi Seeds
1 Teaspoon Badee Saunf (Moti Saunf)
4 – 5 Flakes Garlic
1/2 Inch Ginger
2 Inch Piece of Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Khus Khus
1 Table Spoon Corriander Seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Til
1/2 Onion

Mutton Xacuti Ingredients:

1 Kg Mutton
Small round Potatoes
Small Onions
Dash of Nutmeg Powder
Small Bits of Coconut

The steps are exactly the same as the Chicken Xacuti, so you can follow the entire procedure from here. Now the key differences is the time taken for the Mutton to cook. Since I made this myself I had to over cook the potatoes and onions because of the mutton was just too tough. It would be easier to first semi cook in a pressure cooker and then add it to the xacuti.

Another interesting variation is that, instead of just adding water to the dish for gravy, I added coconut milk that gave it a lovely flavour. My wife and I had a lovely dinner on Banana leaves, yes its so simple to make a special dinner by just eating on banana leaves, no washing to be done as well 🙂

We made Dosas, Sambar, Chutney, Mutton Xacuti and Rice, I also enjoyed a dosa with the Xacuti 🙂 Don’t forget the entire Mutton Xacuti steps can be found here, and apart from these small changes the procedure is entirely the same!
