Mutton Korma Recipe

Mutton Korma or Mutton Korma Recipe

When it comes to serious cooking, cooking mutton poses real challenge. I got this legacy of cooking mutton and well done mutton from my father who would cook up a storm in kitchen every time my mom went out for 2-3 days leaving dad and me alone. He would cook up cracker of non veg dishes, especially mutton. He would just cook mutton slow. That's how you give time for the spices and mutton to bind and get to know each other and end up in Happy Matrimony! Spicy Mutton Korma is one dish like this.

This spicy Korma is really special to me and is my 'Save the Day' dish. There is nothing easier than this dish. It's typical Mughali and amazingly spicy. It has ingredients full of flavor and meant to give the best aroma and tingling after taste on your tongue and your drool on your fingers. The mutton will be oh so soft and will just melt in your mouth.

  1. This seems to be quite an easy one to start with. I've never really cooked mutton before because of the fact that i didn't know how to select the right cut for which dish and also did not know the recipe to the T. But this one seems to be a great recipe, i might as well begin mutton cooking with this recipe of yours.
