How to Make Mutton Karahi at Home

I have tried many Mutton Karahi Recipes and finally found this one best in taste. My cousin shared the recipe with me; her hubby cook mutton karahi in this way :D.

I have used four onions in karahi because our family like masala, you can reduce the onion according to your preference.
