When the oil is hot, add bay leaf, crushed garam masala, dry red chillies and sugar and fry for a few seconds.
Add onion and fry until slightly browned.
Add ginger and garlic and fry until nicely browned.
Now add tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes.
Add the mutton pieces and potatoes along with the marinade and fry for 5-6 minutes on high heat.
Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, cumin powder and salt and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Now add a cup of water and pressure cook until mutton is done.
Remove the pressure cooker from heat and let the pressure release.
Open the lid and add garam masala powder and lemon juice and mix well.
Cook for another 3-4 minutes until the gravy is slightly thickened.

This dish is traditionally made in a kadai but you can definitely make it in a pressure cooker to fasten the process.
If cooked in a kadai, it will take approximately 2 hours for the curry to cook properly.
