Mutton Badam Pasanda

Recipe for Mutton Badam Pasanda or How to make Mutton Pasanda.

Hey Friends,

So after some gap, I am back and that too with a bang with a dish which is my fixed menu when I visit Karim's in Old Delhi near Jama Masjid.

There are few things that I get fixated to like this dish which is called Badam Pasanda in Karim's menu and one of my shoes which I can't seem to discard even though they are totally worn out. Well, not that I have not ordered new shoes but still I still fixated to my old ones. Badam Pasanda is so delicious and rich that anyone can get hooked to it. Once you try it, you will know I am fixated to it.

And also, Ramzan is round the corner and this had to be the dish that I would try. Even Haleem is on my mind. Few more recipes you can cook during Ramzan are given below.

I was planning a visit to Karim's this Friday but had to cancel it due to dinner with my boss. But then I wanted to have taste of this dish in my mouth. And obviously, I had planned to make this dish for sometime and finally I got the urge and opportunity to do it.

Let's get to the recipe now.

Mutton Badam Pasanda


Bonless strips of mutton cooked tender in exotic Indian spices.

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Yield: Serves 4

Boneless mutton from goat thigh cut into thin strips. 750 grams.
Desi Ghee or clarified butter. 8-10 tablespoons. (Don't frown now)
250 grams curd.
1 and half tablespoons whole black pepper.
10-15 cloves
Salt to Taste
3-4 green cardamoms
1 and half tablespoons cumin
1 and half tablespoons Garam Masala
3 table spoons Kashmiri Red chilli powder or normal red chilli powder
4 table spoons of garlic paste
5 Tablespoons paste of browned onions
Peeled Almonds

  1. Now this is really simple like Mutton Korma recipe that I have on my blog. But in this, first just pound the mutton strips a little to make them even thinner.
  2. Now in a thick bases aluminium pot or kadhai, add all the ingredients together.
  3. Mix them well and turn on the gas.
  4. Cook on high for about 10 minutes.
  5. Then cook on low for about 30 minutes or till the time mutton gets really tender.
  6. That's it. Your Mutton Badam Pasanda is ready. Garnish with boiled Almonds which makes it Badam Pasanda.

I wish could make those tandoori rotis they serve in Karim's but you can enjoy with normal tandoori roti or even chapati. This is a dish really close to my heart and my tongue craves for it all the time.

Do try it and you will thank me. :-)
