  • 1 kg mutton, cut into small pieces

  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Water, as needed

  • In a large pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they are golden brown.
  • Add the minced garlic and grated ginger and sauté for another minute.
