servings

Method: Chili mutton  

  1. Heat olive oil in a deep pan over medium heat and add onions, garlic, yellow pepper and parsley.
  2. Sauté for 3-5 minutes or until onions becomes translucent. Add the meat pieces and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add all the spices except medium curry powder (it will be added later). Keep stirring until the pieces are evenly coated, thereafter season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add sweet chili sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Next, add water and medium curry powder, close the lid and lower heat. Cook for 35 minutes, stirring often.
  5. After 35 minutes add baby carrots and green beans and stir. Lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Your delicious stew is ready.
  6. Serve rice with chili mutton stew. Garnish with parsley and chili flakes. 

Tips: The stove heat must always be on medium to low, to avoid burning the stew. You can increase the servings, but make sure you adjust the ingredients accordingly. If you don’t like very spicy stew, you can omit the chili flakes and hot chili powder. If you prefer softer veggies, then simmer for a longer period. Best served whilst its hot.
