What is Mutton Curry?
A traditional mutton curry is when you put everything in a clay pot or a handi and cook it over slow heat over a wood fire. Nowadays the mutton is generally cooked in a pressure cooker or slow cooked while being covered, after sauteeing all the ingredients, mainly mutton in an open pan. The slow cooked version generally results in a more tender meat, but the pressure cooker does a good job of recreating a similar flavour in a lot less time. It is eaten with cooked rice or Indian breads, like lachha paratha or parotta.
