Mutton Curry

Posted in : Veg/Non Veg on by : Simmi Iyer

In most Indian households, mutton curry holds a special relevance and is mostly associated with celebrations and special occasions. So much so that most festivals or special days are incomplete without a hearty meat delicacy. Made with the goodness of goat meat and spices like garam masala, coriander and cumin, this one is a festival recipe which is indulgent and a delight to the palate. Served as a main course recipe with plain rice, onion and green chilli salad, this recipe made in mustard oil and ghee retains the taste of meat with an amazing kick that the spices offer. Mutton Curry is undeniably one of the most delicious mutton dish.
