Mutton and macaroni curry

This is one of those dishes that my mum came up for my granddad and my father. I remember eating this dish once many many mannnyyy moons ago.

So learning to make this dish with my mum was really fun and delicious.




  • 2 x cups cooked macaroni, chopped into pieces.
  • 500g x mutton cut into cubes.
  • 1 x tsp Bombay masala.
  • 1 x tsp Chowman’s masala.
  • 1 x tsp special mix masala.
  • ½ x tsp jeera powder.
  • ½ x tsp dhania powder.
  • ¼ x tsp turmeric powder.
  • Salt to taste.
  • 1 x onion, chopped.
  • 1 x tsp ginger and garlic paste.
  • 1 x tsbp tomatoe paste.


  • In a pot, heat some oil on a low heat.
  • Add the onions and saute till transparent.
  • Add the salt and ginger and garlic paste, mix well.
  • Add the spices, tomatoe paste and a cup of water.
  • Mix and allow the mixture to start to boil.
  • Add the mutton pieces, cover and allow to cook till the meat is soft.
  • You can add more water to prevent the meat from sticking.
  • When the meat is soft, add the chopped macaroni and mix well so that the gravy coats the macaroni.
  • Cook on a low heat till all the gravy has been absorbed.
  • Remove from the heat and enjoy.
