Mutton Curry

Hi friends...." HAPPY NEW YEAR " i wish you all every success ,happiness and prosperity.

This is a "Kerala Country side Mutton curry'( Nadan mutton curry ). A dish which is truly traditional as well as spicy. When mom makes this, the whole house smelled great. We all love our mom's dishes and every mom has their own touch of making it special for us. This has been passed on from my grand mother to my mom and now its my turn.

Please do adjust the spiciness according to your own taste buds.
