Mutton Masala

"This is a traditional dish cooked for the family or at a large party or get-together. Red tomatoes and a good Kashmiri chilli powder give it a deep red colour. It can be served as a thick gravy based mutton dish or shorba."

  1. I went looking for a beef curry recipe, but when I couldn't find one to suit, came up with this. I can't imagine how it earned its one star (but then everything is personal preferance I guess), as this is easy and tastes sooo good. I would love to know what "a good Kashmiri chilli powder" tastes like, as we can't get that here. We thought about it for a while and decided 1 teaspoon of our current very hot chilli powder and 2 teaspoons of sweet paprika would give us the desired "deep red colour". If we didn't eat curry as often as we do, this just might be a 5. Thanks for a great recipe Charishma.
