Indian Lamb/Mutton Curry

Lamb/Mutton is one of my favorite foods. I love to cook at home. In Indian restaurants, when I peruse the menu and see mutton listed  I’ll invariably order it. And when I go to the Indian grocery store I definitely bring home some fresh meat to make this yummy dish that mom taught me. This goes well with rice, and wheat bread, naan. My kids also love this dish. You can adjust the spices according to your taste and enjoy this delicious curry!
