1. In a pressure cooker add washed mutton, sliced onions, chopped tomatoes, salt, little oil, ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder and pressure cook till mutton is done.
2. In a big vessel add the potatoes and fry them a little, set aside
3. To the same oil add the green chillies and fry them a little, add a little ginger garlic paste, and then immediately transfer all the contents of the mixtue.
4. Cook the mixture on medium high flame, and after 5-7 mins add the coriander powder.
5. Add the fried potatoes to the gravy, sprinkle little chopped coriander, cover the vessel and cook untill the oil floats on top and the potaotes are done.
6. Now add the garam masala powder and cook for another 5 mins. Taste the salt and adjust as per your need
7. Garnish with coriander leaves
8. Serve hot with boiled rice

There are many ways to cook this particular gravy, but i like to lessen my work by pressure cooking meat with onions and tomatoes. It a very tiring job to fry onions and then pressure cooking thm and the saute again with tomatoes in it. This way everything gets cooked at one time
