Pressure cooked Mutton rezala in 20 minutes

Mutton rezala

Today is my husband’s birthday and I had to cook 5 types of vegetable fries, biuli dal, Shorshe Ilish  (Hilsa in mustard seed paste) and Mutton rezala for lunch. And I had to be super fast as well since I had to look after my daughter, have some other tasks too. So I decided to cook the Mutton rezala in a pressure cooker in lesser time. And yes, the dish came out too well and in just 20 minutes. That’s the beauty of a pressure cooker!! Earlier I shared the chicken rezala recipe. Hope you tried that too! I will now share the recipe for mutton rezala. Let’s have a look.

  • Mustard oil/ refined oil or ghee
  • 1 red dry chilly
  • Salt
  • A paste of 2 big onions, 7 garlic cloves, 1 inch ginger
