1/1 Photo of Spicy Mutton Curry
I love spicy cooking once in a week. Its not only mouth watering and makes you feel like you ate a hearty meal. This is obviously only for those who like a little spice in their dishes. You can eat this with rice, chappati, dosa, idli, puttu, kappa. This meal can be made easily in a pressure cooker which is the way i have instructed. However cooking the normal way takes a little longer and its adds more to the flavours. You can also preserve this dish in the fridge for about 3 days.
