  3.  Chop the mutton into cubes. Chop the chicken pieces and boil the eggs.
  4.  Slice the onions and garlic. Grind the ginger and garlic to form a paste.
  5.  Heat some oil in pan. Add the chopped onion and garlic. Fry it till it become translucent.
  6.  Add the chopped chicken and mutton pieces and cook them. Add the spices like turmeric, red chilli powder, coriander powder and Garam masala. Add 3 cups of water and salt to it. Sauté it on medium flame. Cook it until only 1/3rd of water is left. Check the meat for tenderness.
  7.  Add the curd and some ghee. Cook it until the meat absorbs all the curd.
