  7. Hi
    Can you please suggest what I can use instead of yoghurt? Would coconut milk be okay?
    Also how much Garam Masala should we put in towards the end of the cooking?
    And if we don't have a pressure cooker how do we cook it?
    Many thanks for posting this lovely recipe!

    1. U r welcome. Yoghurt is d main ingredient of this recipe. You can add lemon juice at d end. And if you dont have pressure cooker, cook mutton in a heavy bottomed pan with enough water in medium flame for 40 - 45 mins. Happy cooking!

  8. You've forgotten to add the Jaipal in your recipie

  9. Instead of ghee, can I use four table spoons oil ?

    1. Ghee enhances the flavor of the dish but it can be substituted with oil too.
