Shahi Mutton Kasuri (Mutton cooked with Dry Fenugreek Leaves)

 

            Check out this delicious Shahi Mutton Curry made with some crushed kasuri methi (dry fenugreek leaves) and almond paste for a rich & creamy gravy. It is a good option when fresh methi leaves are unavailable. This dish is a perfect party recipe and apt for special occasions.

           I preferred mustard oil for cooking, but you may use any other oil you wish. Enjoy it with either steamed rice, plain biryani, jeera rice, tandoori roti, naan or chapatti. So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare this delicacy.
