Mutton Kurma

         Its like the most favourite thing for me now, i just love to try out every new recipes i get hold of, may be from a friend or from a news paper it doesn't matter.Now i can't say how much we love this curry, after my amma's special  Mutton Curry i would opt this on for sure. This Mutton Kurma was served specially for us by our friend "Kalyani" when we visited her home last year. It was soo good, i really don't remember the menu other than this Mutton Kurma. The next best thing for me is that my little sweetheart loves this :)
