Mutton Curry

Goat mutton is not a very popular protein intake source in the middle east, but I am glad to have supermarkets which stocks or sources fresh ones from the subcontinent or Africa

Mutton biryani or curry just tastes superb! Curry paired with rotis (wheat bread) or rice just goes too well.I have been wanting to make some new kinda mutton curry and not the usual I make

My facebook group has awesome foodies and they really inspire me to cook. One such foodie buddy is Vinita Mishra. She had posted a delicious looking mutton curry that caught my attentions and Vinita was kind enough to share the recipe so quickly.

Vinita is a blogger and her site www.vinitaskitchen.wordpress.com has some lovely bakes. I urge you all to have a look at her work and try out the amazing creativity she shares
