Adding the mutton pieces.

Add the water till mutton is fully covered. Allow to boil.
When it started to boil, cover with cooker lid and whistle and wait for 6 whistles or till the mutton is well cooked.
Add the coriander leaves and allow to boil.
This is the stage where either you can filter the water which is the mutton soup Or you can leave the water to boil out completely.
Mean while take the garlic, pepper and cumin seeds
Crush or smash them nice as shown.
In another pan, add the oil, when hot add the curry leaves and the crushed garlic pepper paste.
Here you can add 1/2 tsp butter for richer taste. Fry for 2 to 3 min.

Add the chilli powder, turmeric, coriander powder, cumin powder and required salt.
Fry them nicely till all water evaporates completely.
You can see oil oozing out. Switch if the stove and garnish with coriander leaves.

Here you can add onion and tomato before adding mutton pieces also. No harm in it, Since we are going to pressure cook all.
The 6 whistles took around 14 min for me. It might vary based on the cooker and the quality of mutton. if If the mutton is not cooked, add some more water and pressure cook it again for another 7 to 8 min.
Take care while adding salt as the mutton already contsins salt.
Adding butter is optional, but I feel it enhances the taste. Salted or unsalted butter can used. While using salted butter again take care of the salt amount while adding.
We used the mutton cooked water for preparing soup. But my mom used to say if we leave that water in it, the mutton would be more tasty.
