This is a real shahi dish where mutton is cooked in a creamy mustard gravy. It goes well with pulao, jeera rice, plain Biryani, tandoori roti, naan or any Indian bread.
In this recipe, I have added kasundi (bottled Bengali mustard sauce) and almond paste to make the consistency more rich and creamy. So you have an easy and a yummy mutton curry to relish.
In case of non-availability of kasundi, you can use some homemade ground mustard paste. So go ahead and try this delectable dish and relish with any form of rice preparation or Indian bread. So check the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.
I marinated the mutton with yoghurt, ginger-garlic paste, and other dry spices before continuing with my cooking process. The end result was simply awesome with a hint of mustard flavour and the creaminess coming from the ground paste of almonds. It is a great party recipe for special occasions.
