Indian Mutton Stew with dumplings Recipe:
The Special Saturday Dinner- Indian Style mutton stew with some inspired dumpling.
The Saturday dinner was about warmth, comfort, rustic and original food with a dash of a modern twist. Preparing a country style mutton stew with whole spices was like walking down the memory lane to times when mummy’s stew would simmer away for hours filling up the entire house with its aroma. No matter how I would have loved to simmer cook my stew for hours but just couldn’t because by the time I had made up my mind about a Saturday special there wasn’t enough time left to dinner. So I instead used our efficient pressure cooking technique and my stew still turned out amazing and all of that without keeping us salivating for long. A stew had actually been on my mind ever since I saw our dearest Gary Mehigan share his mom’s lamb stew with dumplings on one of the episodes of Masterchef Australia this season. So now you know why the “inspired dumplings”, obviously like we ever serve our stew with dumplings here in our Indian kitchen, it is rather served with hot rotis (our healthy Indian bread). But trust me those dumplings added to the warm, spicy mutton stew was simply amazing and made a wholesome hearty meal. The inspiration however was strictly limited to adding those dumplings for unlike him we can’t add tomatoes to our Indian style mutton stew ever, and only to re-iterate the flavours to this stew was absolutely purely rustic Indian. Now go ahead and try this one and you’ll love it when it rains or on a cold winter night, or just turn on your AC and indulge, who cares if its still summer’s.
