Spicy Mutton Meatball Curry-Women's Day Special

Indian cuisine's specialty is curries and spicy gravies. India is full of spices and food without it tastes very bland. All parts of India have at least one kind of spicy specialty. Now, I guess I spoke more about India than the dish. I thought of making this spicy mutton meatball curry while my daughter was studying India's Freedom Struggle. Many brave women played a major role in India's freedom struggle. So, why not make this curry on the ocassion of Women's Day. It's not very spicy, but has the necessary hotness and finds usage of all the spices. I am sure this will taste great! Do try it out! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe!! Njoy!!) Happy Women's Day!! :)

2. Oil your palms and then make lemon sized balls/koftas of the mixture.
3. Line them on a plate and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Making the curry:
1. Heat oil in a pan and add the whole spices. Next, add the onion paste and cook on medium heat till golden brown in colour.
2.Next, add the garlic paste and saute for 2 mins. To the onion garlic paste add turmeric, red chilli ,cumin powders, salt, sugar and cook the spicy mix on medium heat for 5/6 mins. or till oil starts separating from the sides of the pan.
3. Now add 1.5-2 cups of water and stir well. cover with a lid and let it boil on high heat. Next, reduce the heat and slowly add the refrigerated meat balls. Do not overcrowd them as they would swell up as they cook.
4. Cover the lid and let cook on simmer for 15-20 mins. Once the koftas are done add ghee/clarified butter.
5. Let the meatballs rest in the gravy for 1-2 hours so that the flavours get absorbed. The more they rest, the more the flavour.
