Pepper Mutton

Pepper Mutton

This mutton fry requires few ingredients and is a good side dish. I learnt it from my husband . My husband is a big fan of man chetti/ clay pot. So he makes this dish in a man chetti. I do the same too.

You can follow the same method using a pressure cooker too. But in the end you have to cook the pepper mutton uncovered until the water evaporates.


  • Oil – 1.5 tbsps
  • Cumin Seeds – 1/4 tsp (optional)
  • Whole peppercorns – 6
  • Onion – 1 cup, finely chopped
  • Boneless mutton pieces – 2 cups, small pieces
  • Salt – to taste
  • Pepper powder – 1 tbsp, adjust according to taste
  • Water – as required
  • Salt – to taste
  • Cilantro – to garnish


  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Add cumin seeds and peppercorn. Wait for few seconds.
  • Add chopped onions and saute until the onions turn transparent.
  • Add mutton pieces and saute for 4 minutes.
  • Add salt,pepper and water just enough to cover the mutton pieces.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook on medium heat until the mutton is well cooked.
  • Stir occasionally.
  • Make sure that the water does not evaporate before the mutton is cooked.
  • Add water as required.
  • When the mutton is cooked and the water has evaporated, turn off the heat and garnish with cilantro.
