Mutton Kuzhambu Recipe | South Indian Style Mutton Curry(With Coconut)

Mutton Kuzhambu Recipe
Most Favorited and popular recipes of Spicy Treats' are Non-Vegetarian recipes and also I get more request for Chicken or Non-Vegetarian recipes. So mainly to share here, I cook Non-Veg recipes once or twice in a month. And this time it is Mutton Kuzhambu / South Indian Style Mutton Curry and it is my Mom's recipe. This is how My mom makes Mutton Kuzhambu at home, simple Pressure cooker method with Mutton Masala Powder. But My Grandma's recipe is different and she never used store bought Masala Powder, with freshly ground spices. Also My Grandma add few Potato pieces and Drumstick to the Mutton Kuzhambu. That gives different flavor and unique taste. Will share that recipe later.
This Mutton kuzhambu recipe is easy to make with less preparation process. We usually add few mint leaves to Non-Veg Kuzhambu that really gives lovely flavor and taste. Mutton kuzhambu pairs well with Idli/Dosa/Appam/Parotta and with Plain Rice & Biryani also. We had it with Idlis for breakfast and with rice for lunch.
