This Indian mutton curry recipe is the way my mother makes mutton curry at home. It doesn’t involve too many steps and is very delicious. While it doesn’t involve a lot of steps, the key at making a great mutton curry is cooking it slow on a medium-low flame. Marination is very important and gives rich flavors to the mutton. You can have this mutton curry with chapattis or Indian bread or with rice.
