    • Step 4:- Heat the oil and add this semi grind whole spices in the hot water. As this is Bengali style mutton curry mustard oil is an important part of it. But due to some allergic issues I am using normal refined oil. Let the whole spices splutter there aroma in the oil.
    • Step 5:- Cut the potato in two pieces. Add this potato in aromatic hot oil, fry it well. So keep it aside.
    • Step 6:-Now add marinated mutton in the hot aromatic oil and stir it continuously. Also add salt.

    • Step 9:- It is time to add fried potatoes in the mutton. Mix all together and let it boil on steam.
    • Step 10:- Check after 15 minutes, you can see mutton is totally dry now. Add water in the mutton and make the gravy. Let it boil until the mutton cooks fully and gets soft.
    • Step 11:- After 15 minutes check whether the mutton is cooked or not. If yes, then sprinkle garam masala on it.
