South Indian Mutton/Lamb curry

Mutton/Lamb masala curry is popular in south India served in south Indian non-vegetarian restaurants. Mutton (Lamb) cooked with blended spices, onion, tomato and coconut milk to form spicy thick masala gravy. Mutton masala curry tastes awesome and can be served with white rice, Indian breads, biryani and any rice dish. I use this gravy as a spread for bread. Try this authentic south Indian mutton curry recipe and Enjoy Cooking!!!

Sounds nice, haven't made it yet but would like to know how long to marinate the meat.

Very impressed with this dish and you can basically tailor it to suit your strength preferences. Easy to make and I let mine simmer on a very very low heat for over an hour to get the lamb nice and tender. Delicious.
