Kerala mutton curry is loaded with whole lot of flavours, if you want to have something spicy and with flavours this is the must try recipe i highly recommend you guys. As i told you to get the best flavours of this recipe  is in the freshly grinded masala powder that we roast and grind. Earlier i have made this curry for the n number of times, but one thing i have noted is i recommend you to grind the roasted spices without water. Because i have noticed when i grind the spices adding water it gives you a thick masala paste, the taste totally differs, it taste better when you add the powder. This mutton curry is tasted yum with Rice, Aapam, dosa, idly. Do try this recipe and let me know.
