Hyderabadi Mutton Curry or lamb curry is a simple recipe yet very tasty cooked well in onions and tomatoes. Mutton Curry is usually eaten with rotis or any form of rice. I would say that it is a must try recipe as it is a superb dish that can be eaten with any meal.
My family usually makes non veg curries in several different ways and I am here to divulge all the recipes and spread the Indian cooking. Hyderabadis usually prefer to mix mutton with vegetables and cook.
Its a different combination but I would say that all the different vegetables cooked along with mutton taste really well .
Most of the people prefer chicken recipes rather than mutton recipes, but I must tell you mutton recipes taste well if it is cooked slowly and not overcooked. Overcooking takes away all the flavors.
Here, I have separtely tenderized the mutton and then cooking separately the gravy of onions and tomatoes and then adding the tenderized meat and cooking them combined which is a diferent way but gives an amazing taste to the meat.
