About Kasoori Mutton Masala Recipe

A very delicious and an aromatic Mutton Curry made with crushed kasoori methi (dry fenugreek leaves). This is a good option if fresh methi leaves are unavailable. It is best relished as a main course with either plain rice, kuska Biryani, jeera rice, tandoori roti, naan or chapati.
