Lamb korma/ mutton kurma

Lamb Korma/kurma!! One of the most celebrated item in our family menu?!!we buy lamb occasionally, its because not that fond of it like chicken?..so whenever I am about to cook mutton my husband prefer it this way-Korma/ Kurma!!

Korma with spicy thick coconut sauce is really a good combo with ghee rice or “pathiri”( an Indian bread with rice flour)..As I am not good in making pathiri, we prefer ghee rice..??
