7. now again add 2 glass water and let it cook with tight lid for almost 1 hour 45 minutes. and try not to open the lid in between because this way your meat will tenderly cook. but you can open the lid at end if you feel it will burn,(but because of water and tight lid it will not burn)

I use chicken cube because we need stock for this gravy to cook more flavorful… i don’t have mutton stock so i just use alternate and used chicken cube for more rich gravy.
8. now make a fine paste of 1 tbsp wheat flour and 1/4 cup water.(be careful there should not be any lumps in it)
