Pepper Mutton Curry

Mutton? How can we Indians possibly ditch mutton aside? Not us though. We definitely need our mutton fix at least once a month. In fact, we patiently wait for a mutton dish because there's no way we can ever say no to mutton. Mutton any way and as the preferred our regular way (Mutton Parathal, Mutton Dalca, Muton Kurma, Masala Mutton Curry & Mutton Keema). Of course, mutton in curry forever is sensation or even in other dishes, but preferably it must be in tandem for a curry (Papaya Sardine Curry, Bengali Yogurt Fish Curry, Tamarind Prawn Curry & Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry). For a hearty satisfying meal, forget about sinfulness for the time being, this Pepper Mutton Curry, another style to a curry, will rock and roll your tastebuds when tucked into alongside Ghee Rice/Nei Choru, Red Cabbage Thoran or Beans Thoran. Oh-so-yum! Of course you can also pair this spicy, thick, peppery mutton curry with tosai, idli or roti canai. Additionally, do take into account that Pepper Mutton Curry cooked a day ahead, stored in the fridge and warmed up the next day is further impacting tastes. 

500g mutton - cut into medium size pieces
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
2 bay leaves

  4. How you make me miss home Nava! We cannot find Indian curry here in Argentina. They don´t eat spicy food! I am an Indian friend in South Africa and she always sends me traditional Indian curry. My husband did not know what it tasted like and now he is also hooked. Luckily they keep me in supply and every time a friend visits from South Africa, I get a few packets.

  5. thanks for all the sharing everyone.

  6. I love pepper and can imagine how flavourful and yummy this curry will be
