For any meat lovers, eating mutton is like some other feeling which can’t be described. Given a choice, they will always choose mutton over chicken. It’s juicy, flavourful, tasty, melts in your mouth, etc.
When I was a kid, I was never a fan of it. I don’t know the reason for that. I used to end up having just the mutton gravy than the mutton pieces. But around 10 years back, I had gone to one of my family friend’s house for dinner and he made some mutton curry. So as to not be rude, I ate it and that curry just changed my view of eating mutton. Even my mom was shocked that I ate so much of mutton. I don’t know what was about that recipe but I ended up asking for the recipe and telling my mom to make it.
Over the years, as I started cooking, I learnt that recipe and made it. And the love for mutton just grew from there. Now I know 3-4 styles of making mutton curry. According to mom, I have become an expert in making mutton curry. Just happy to hear that.
This recipe is easy and a simple one pot recipe. Not much work needed. I use pressure cook. Makes it easier to cook mutton. Just put all the ingredients one by one and cook. I usually make this recipe on sundays. It’s like a typical sunday mutton curry. Hope you like this recipe.
