Here i have made in a clay pot. Cooking in a clay pot is healthy and it self gives the curry a special flavor. We have cooking in claypot the fish curry, chicken, beef and mutton. And should say it looks good and the food gets extra yummy when did so. 
Nevertheless, if you do not have a clay pot you could use a cast-iron skillet or any other kadai or pan. 
Many of the recipes of Mutton Chop have pepper powder in the gravy, but I personally like the peppercorns in the curry and a bite of it in between and so I added that while I cooked the mutton in the pressure cooker. If you do not like that, you could add the pepper powder in the gravy along with those masalas.
Any doubts you have while cooking, please watch the video attached. 
Hope you would enjoy this recipe. Let mee know how it went for you.
Lots of Love,
