Minced Meat Curry

Standard

This minced meat curry is something simple, easy and can be made in minutes. This goes out well with Poori, Idly, Dosa and Chapathi. My mother and grandmother use to prepare this very often for poori or for dosa. I like this right from my childhood. I prepare this usually when my kids demand poori for lunch. Let me share the recipe…

Lamb Curry / Varuthu Aracha Mutton Kulambu

The term “Varuthu Aracha” means roasted and ground. The Varuthuaracha Mutton curry is nothing but Lamb curry prepared by roasting and grinding the spices at that time of preparing the curry instead of using any spice powders for flavor and taste. This curry has fresh flavor, taste and attractive color.

Sesame Mutton (lamb) Curry / Yellu Kari Kulambu

Standard

Sesame Mutton curry is something different for me, got to find when I was hunting for mutton recipes. Actually I about Mutton Nalli (Lamb Marrow Bones) for preparing Nalli Nihari, but when I found out this recipe, I thought of preparing this dish with Mutton Nalli (Lamb Marrow Bones) and few pieces of Mutton. The aroma of curry was fantastic and it tastes delicious. Sesame seeds combined with Mutton was completely different for me, since it was my first time of having this dish.

It goes out with steamed rice, but I would say that it foes our perfect with chapathi and dosa. Give a try, never miss it. Let us move on to the recipe…
