Spicy Mutton Curry Recipe
One of those days when Dad wanted to eat a simple mutton curry and so did Sidhant, however, between Dad and Mom neither wanted to do it. So 500 grams of mutton was promptly deposited on my table and with a demand for spicy mutton curry.
I wanted to do something snappy, spicy and fragrant which went well with rice which is usually present on our lunch table. Today, I worked with powdered spices, steered clear of whole spices and added a twist at the end.
