Masaledar Mutton Recipe Card


Mutton pieces on the bone cooked to perfection in a spicy masaledar gravy. Pressure cooking the mutton ensures it is well cooked, succulent and falls of the bone in no time. This mutton curry tastes great along with chapattis and rice, but my favourite way to eat it is with pav.
