Mati Handi Mutton: A Mouthwatering Delicacy from Odisha

Mati handi mutton is different from other mutton dishes because of the way it is cooked and the spices it uses. The clay pot, or mati handi, is an earthenware vessel that retains heat and moisture, and enhances the taste and texture of the meat. The mutton is marinated with yogurt, ginger, garlic, turmeric, and salt, and then cooked with onions, tomatoes, potatoes, and garam masala, a blend of spices that includes cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and bay leaves. The cooking process takes about an hour, and the result is a tender and juicy mutton that melts in your mouth.

When I first tasted mati handi mutton, I was amazed by the taste. It was served with steaming hot rice, and I could not get enough of it. It was spicy, tangy, and savory, and had a distinct flavor that I had never experienced before. I was so impressed by the dish and we tried many times to prepare it at home. Due to some health issues, I am not eating red meat, so nowadays, we are not preparing at home. That's why, I took all these photographs from the tweet by Saumya Parida.
