Mash the mutton on a high flame using a wooden spoon. Stir in half a cup of rice flour without forming lumps.
Gradually add the mutton stock and mix it well. You can also add saffron water for extra flavour.
In a separate pan, fry the onions until crispy. Then, add them to the mutton with about half a cup of oil. Mix everything well.
