Mutton Kurma


Taking inspiration from Kerala cuisine, my mother gave me the "MUTTON KURMA" recipe - vibrant colored,  truly rich, mildly sweet with a kick of peppery flavor. It is a  family owned recipe. The juicy meat is cooked in freshly pressed creamy coconut milk and I just can't get enough when served with a steamy bed of white rice...!! The meat is very tender and  potatoes just adds more texture to the creamy sauce.

A  MUST TRY Recipe  !!
