Chop curry with green peppers

This is my dad’s favourite dish. Although I am a not a huge fan of the greenpeppers.

I tend to use green peppers but when the going gets tough and they don’t stock green, then red will just have to do.



  • 1 x onion, chopped.
  • 1 x tsp Bombay delight masala.
  • 1 x tsp Chowmans masala.
  • 1 x tsp Mixed masala.
  • ½ x tsp jeera powder.
  • ½ x tsp dhania powder.
  • ½ x tsp garam masala.
  • ¼ x tsp turmeric powder.
  • 500g x mutton chops.
  • Fresh dhania for garnish.
  • 2 x tbsp. tomatoe paste.
  • 1 x tbsp. ginger and garlic paste.
  • Salt to taste.
  • 1 x green pepper, deseeded and copped.


  • Heat some oil in a pot.
  • Add the onions and sauté till transparent.
  • Add the salt and ginger and garlic paste.
  • Mix well and add the masala’s, jeera powder, dhania powder, turmeric powder
  • Mix so that the spices are mixed well.

  • Mix and allow the mixture to come to a boil.
  • Add the chops, cover and allow to cook till the meat is almost tender.
  • Add the chopped green peppers and cover again and let cook till the meat is nice and tender.
  • You can add more water as the food cooks so that there is a nice juicy gravy.
