You need to cook it atleast for 6-7 whistle, may take longer if meat is not tender.

Open the cooker lid and check the consistency of curry, if you want to add water let it cook on gas for 5 more mins otherwise your Mutton payya is ready to be served.

Goes well with hot rice, can drink it like soup too.
