Masala Mutton Curry


I met the mutton man again. Of course I met him at the wet market and not anywhere else, unless he is my personal friend. Then again, come to think of it, don't you think it will be to my advantage if  mutton man is my best friend? Free fresh mutton (Mutton Kurma & Mutton Dalca), that's a bit too much I suppose, maybe for mutton being delivered at my door instead being pushed jolted at his stall by the heavy duty Indians. Especially the ladies. Oppsie! Did I hurt any of you? If I did, I'm so-so sorry. I can't help it. To believe me, you must head to any mutton stall, better still on weekends or during Deepavali where you can take census on obesity amongst Indian ladies. The truth is definitely out there or everywhere for the matter. Unbelievable. Anyway, even if you are stared at while buying mutton, I bet eyes will roll if you on a slim side, don't bother. Make sure you get your share of mutton  (Mutton Soup & Mutton Meatball Soup) and return home for making this Nava K's Masala Mutton Curry (Mutton Parathal). Are you ready people? The recipe is all yours for this spicy, thick and really eye-popping Masala Mutton Curry (Crab Curry).
