Mutton Cutlets

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

For the Mutton cutlets I have used mutton mince , mince with less fat and that is what I got , a good quality mutton mince. Mutton is a family favourite, so need to come up with different ways to prepare mutton. Since I had mutton mince with me decided to with cutlets.

For this recipe I have used two types of East Indian Masalas, one the Tempero Di Cuddi powder which is just another type of garam masala , a bit stronger than the usual garam masala powder . The other which is quite well known is the East Indian Bottle Masala. Giving the mutton cutlets a fantastic flavour and taste.

Mutton Cutlets


240 gms finely chopped onions

5 green chilies finely chopped

1 tbsp ginger garlic paste

1/2 tsp Tempero Di cuddi powder

Or garam masala powder

1/2 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp pepper powder

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1 stock cube

3 slices of bread

1 tsp East Indian Bottle Masala [in case no East Indian Bottle masala , you can always replace it with a good curry powder }
