What is Hariyali Mutton ?

​​Hariyali mutton is a mutton curry, cooked the classic Indian way, but with the addition of the hariyali flavour that many of us are familiar with. The most common thing we associate this flavouring with is the hara bhara kabab, which is a mixed vegetable kebab, consisting of only green leafy vegetables and ground lentils for binding. In this mutton curry recipe, we've infused the hariyali flavouring and colour through some green spinach leaves.
