Cut the mutton into neat pieces, removing a little of the fat, if necessary, Peel the potatoes, and if large cut in halves or quarters. Slice the onions thinly. Arrange all these layers n a stew pan, beginning and ending with potatoes and sprinkling with salt and pepper between the layers.  Pour the water over then stew gently with tightly covered until the potatoes are soft, about one and a half hours.
