    Meanwhile fry the sliced onions in the oil with continuously stirring until they become golden and crisp. Drain the onion and keep it on tissue paper to cool. Cool them completely and put in a blender. Blend it to make coarse powder, do not blend much as they begin to release oil.

    After cooking the mutton for about 30 minutes, add this coarse powder of fried onion. Add 2 cups of water in it. Cover the wok and cook until the mutton becomes slightly soft, stir occasionally. It may take about an hour or more to become mutton soft.

    At this stage when the mutton becomes soft add strand mace and nutmeg. Continue cooking until the mutton becomes soft and juicy and falls easily from the bone. At this stage add kewra water or green cardamom powder. Mix it well and turn off the heat. Cover the mutton korma and allow it to rest for at least an hour so that the mutton will soak up the flavors.

    Delicious Mutton Korma is ready. Serve it with chappti, roti, naan, paratha or basmati rice.
