This is a delicious Bengali style Mutton curry cooked in a mustard based gravy. I used store bought Kasundi (Bengali mustard sauce), but in the absence of it, you may use homemade mustard paste. I also added potatoes as Bengalis just cannot think of preparing mutton without it. They compliment each other very well.
It is cooked in mustard oil for an authentic flavour, but you can always use any other oil if the pungency of it does not suit your taste. Enjoy it with any form of rice or Indian bread. So check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.
