Oogie's Curry Mutton Stew

Oogie's Curry Mutton Stew

Mutton Stew Meat
Whole Wheat Flour
1-2 Diced Onions
8-10 Peeled Garlic Cloves
1 to 1-1/2 cups Dried Garbanzo Beans
Curry Powder (recipe below)
Garam Masala

Mix a teaspoon or so of curry powder in with about a quarter cup of flour. Lightly coat all the stew meat with the flour spice mixture. In a cast iron dutch oven brown the mutton and diced onion in a small amount of oil. Once the onions are soft add the garlic cloves and brown lightly.

Add the garbanzo beans with enough water to fill pot and fully cover everything. Bake covered in a 250°F to 275°F oven for 4-6 hours (or more) until tender stirring occasionally. You may have to add additional water as it cooks.

1 Hour before serving add several more spoonfuls of curry powder and some garam masala.

Amounts will vary according to amount of meat and your tastes. Serve over basmati rice with a nice India Pale Ale for a hearty treat.

Curry Powder
I make my own curry powder. I find I like to vary the spice mixture often. If you find a particularly good curry that you like there is no reason not to continue to use it. Here's a typical recipe:

(all measurements are approximations)

1-3 tbsp ground Cumin
1-2 tbsp ground Coriander
2 tbsp ground Turmeric
1 tsp ground Cayenne Pepper
1 tbsp ground Paprika
1 tsp ground White Pepper
1 tsp whole Anise Seed
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1 tsp ground Allspice

Mix all the spices and toast in a small dry skillet over a hot fire just until they start to turn brown and toast. Don't burn them so stir often. Store tightly covered and spoon out as needed.
