Lamb korma/ mutton kuruma

Lamb Korma/kuruma!! One of the most celebrated item in our family menu!! We buy lamb occasionally,mainly because of the fact that we are not that fond of lamb like chicken..So whenever I am about to cook mutton my husband prefers it this way-Korma/ Kuruma!!


Lamb cooked in spicy thick coconut sauce is really a good combo for ghee rice. My mom used to serve this delicious curry along with “pathiri” too. ( Pathiri is an Indian flat bread made with rice flour)..As I am not an expert in pathiri making, ghee rice is the only option left..


During Ramadan we used to try more lamb recipes..otherwise all the experiments are on hopefully you can expect more lamb recipes this Ramadan here??!!


so here’s the recipe:


(Please don’t be amazed seeing the list of spices!! I can’t help it?)
