Add ginger garlic paste, powdered masalas, chicken, salt and saute everything for 2 minutes. Put the flame to minimum. Put 1 tbsp desi ghee and cover the lid of the vessel. Open the vessel after every 10 minutes, saute and cover again. After 30 minutes, start testing whether or not the mutton is cooked.
