Hey Guys,

Hope you are doing good. I know that Keralites usually love beef more than mutton. They say it's tastier than mutton. But I am someone who doesn’t consume beef and hence gradually loves mutton more. Mutton can be prepared in a variety of styles. It also has some great medicinal properties and hence is usually given to women post-delivery.

Now to be frank, though I have been someone who loves eating mutton, I had never prepared it by myself. But last week I decided to give it a try. I went through a few recipes on Youtube and finally got an idea of how to prepare it. I combined a few tips and steps from different videos and finally prepared my first ever Mutton Curry. Somehow by god's grace, it actually came out as a delicious recipe!

So as you know me, if I love any dish that I prepared, then it’s obvious that I have to include it on my website. So here I am with my super easy beginner-friendly Restaurant Style Mutton Curry which is absolutely a mouth-watering recipe.

Hope you’ll love this recipe and will surely give it a try. Many people do not like mutton due to it’s the raw smell. To avoid that wash mutton with 1 tbsp salt and ½ tsp vinegar first and then wash it through normal tap water. Also in this recipe, I have added ½ tsp vinegar which helps in eliminating the raw smell of mutton from the dish. So now you know how to avoid the smell, definitely prepare it and let me know how it turned out for you.💓
