About Mangalorean Mutton Curry Recipe

This is a traditional Mutton curry made in the Mangalorean style. It is a very spicy and tangy dish, best relished with plain steamed rice, jeera rice or plain Biryani. It also tastes good with chapatti or naan. A whole lot of roasted spices along with coconut, onion, garlic and ginger make this dish very delicious and full of flavour.
