  1. I LOVE mutton, it’s such an underrated meat for sure. I’ll have to send this to my dad, it’s something he would absolutely love.

  2. I don’t eat lamb but I would like to try this curry recipe with chicken, I’m sure it would be delicious

  3. I’ve tried so many curries in my life, and have only ever made chicken curry. Mutton curry sounds difficult to make because the meat is tougher and I don’t want my fiance to chew the meat non stop!

  4. I got my mouth water just seeing the photos. very good. I’m going to try this weekend. I’m pregnant so I’ll probably dream about the curry.

  5. Aren’t recipes we get from our moms the best? And pat yourself on the back for getting it to taste like hers. I swear, my mom sends me hers, but there must be something in her technique because mine never quite turn out the same. xx
