Spicy Mutton Curry

This is one of the easiest mutton recipes. Delicious mutton curry is made using mutton pieces with onion ,potato and tomato masala. This meal can be made easily in a pressure cooker, which is the way I have prepared. However cooking on a slower flame for about 2 hours is the more preferred method to make the meat more tender and flavorful.

This mutton curry is one of the best side dish for idli, dosa and rice.
