Elaichi Mutton (Sindhi Mutton Curry)

Elaichi Mutton is a Sindhi style mutton curry. My nani (mother’s mother) made this for us all the time when we were kids. One of the highlights of this dish was the use of kapuras or goats testicles. Now I can already hear people making all sorts of barfing noises and turning up their noses, however we grew up eating these and they are delicious. Personally, I love the fact that we use and eat all parts of the animal. I understand that many folks can’t wrap their heads around this because they haven’t grown up eating this way.

I hope you will try this recipe (with or without the testicles). If you can’t find mutton where you live then I would recommend sheep. I do realize in some parts of the world mutton refers to an old sheep. In India though, mutton = goat.

Low and slow or pressure cook it

Mutton is a fairly tough meat and it takes time to cook. India is a country where time is money and which is probably why the pressure cooker is one of the most used appliances in the kitchen. Sure there are dishes like haleem that cook for 12 hours or a low and slow Biryani. In most homes though, ain’t nobody got time for that. So we use the pressure cooker. It’s the fastest way to cook the mutton and make it tender. If you don’t own a pressure cooker you can always just cook it low and slow for an hour or till the mutton is tender. I personally prefer boneless mutton but most mutton lovers will always go for mutton on the bone. Either way, the choice is yours and I’m positive you’ll love this curry.

  1. We call our beef testicles Rocky Mountain Oysters..the best. Will yry your great looking mutton dish when I can fine a goat soutce

  2. I’m surprised by the carb count which I’m assuming comes from the goat’s testicles. All other testicles, sheep, bull, etc have 1g or less per 2.5oz.

  3. Hi I’m confused by the carb Vs net carb count. Why does 26g carb become 2g net, when there is no fiber in the dish? This looks lovely and I’d like to make it but the confusing carbs are putting me off. Thank you in advance

  4. Is it okay if i use cadarmom powder, pepper powder and cumin powder? If yes then how much I need for per servings?

  5. Made this for the second time using bone-in mutton leg and shoulder (as I had no balls 😂) and cooked it in the slow cooker after sauteeing everything on the stovetop first. Eight hours later on low, this gorgeous dish was ready to be inhaled by two very hungry HK fans. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
