Mangsher Chop / Mutton Croquettes


Yesterday I experienced the worst ... my camera's memory card got corrupted and I lost more than half pictures of this recipe. We tried very hard to recover those photos but no luck!! It was nobody's fault, it's just that the tiny little piece of 'card' betrayed me 😔😔😔 very harshly .. and I felt tremendously helpless towards 'technology'. Now you guys know why there is no step by step pictures in this recipe. Anyway, among all of this depression, the brightest side is the dish 'mangsher chop'. In Bengal, it is one of the popular and lip smacking snack which you can get in many fast food centers. Spicy, crumbly mutton filling inside and crispy coating outside. Here in Austin, it was pouring heavily from last 2 - 3 days and I couldn't find any better day than this to make those croquettes. You can pair them with a cup of tea or a can of beer, every-time they will taste better and better.

Marinate the mutton pieces with ginger garlic paste, half Tablespoon of red chilli powder, pinch of salt, mustard oil and half Teaspoon of garam masala powder. Massage the mutton pieces with everything very well.
Keep it in the fridge for overnight or at least for 4 hours.
Now take a pressure cooker.
Add those mutton pieces with half cup of water in the cooker. Give it pressure until the meat becomes totally soft.
If you find some juice after opening the lid, bring the heat to high and stir the mutton until it absorbes all the juices.
Now add the mutton pieces into a blender and blend it to a smooth paste. Keep it aside.
While cooking the mutton, it must have released some oil. Do not discard it.
Add the chopped onion in that oil. Fry for 5 minutes.

Now peel the skin of the boiled potato, mash it well and add it in the cooker. Mix very well for 3 minutes.
Lastly add the mutton paste, chopped green chilies and coriander leaves, salt. Mix well for another 3 minutes and turn off the heat. The filling is ready.
