This is an South Indian Mutton curry, Which I make very often. It’s an authentic Andhra style recipe with a great flavor. This goes well with rice and dosa. It takes few minutes to be cooked.

Usually Mutton / Lamb is prepared in spicy in most of villages around Tamil Nadu, but Andhra cuisine is special for its spiciness and so I have prepared this lamb curry / mutton kulambu as the spicy version.
