Kerala Mutton curry

How is holidays going on everyone ? This is the time to eat and indulge and I hope everyone is doing the same like me. This time we had a fabulous Christmas lunch at Suchi’s place, so it was a kind of blogger's Christmas this time. We all ate and ate until our tummy could take no more. That didn’t quite end my indulgence, since this is the time we invite guest/ friends over, we have been having friends  and still has more dinner plans  the following week. I have been cooking crazily and still enjoying the fun of feeding others. 
Here is one Mutton curry I cooked during one of these days . We don't buy mutton on a regular basis thats why my blog has more chicken recipes than mutton. I  clicked the picture of the curry as we all loved it and I thought if I don’t blog about it, I might forget the recipe and won’t get the exact same taste next time. Sounds funny right ?? But seriosly I  keep my blog as a record of my success trials  and follow my recipe to dot to recreate the same taste.

Made this curry. It was totally appreciated. Unfortunately did not take a picture. I normally do not cook non vegetarian food. But the children love it and have begun to try out dishes for them. Found this so simple to make. No coconut, no yogurt. A no fuss recipe. I only made a paste after the onions were slightly browned.
