Mutton Kulambu | Mutton Kuzhambu | Mutton Kulambu Recipe | Mutton Kuzhambu Recipe


This is a simple and spicy Mutton Curry made in the old-fashioned style!!! This is a Meat Curry that is strong and spicy and is easy to make. You can have this dish with roti, rice, dosa or even idli.  This recipe prepared with fresh ground masala. Use either pressure cooker or mud pot or slow cooker to prepare this curry.  Usually, Meat Curries involve a lot of fuss. But this is a simple yet best recipe. Just prepare freshly ground masala and add these spices to mutton and cook to 7 whistles and there you have the Curry. Since it is the old style. But it all depends on the measures and how you cook the meat. I am sharing the methods to cook it in a traditional pressure cooker. In this recipe I’m adding red chilli and Kashmiri red chilli, pepper for spice level. Kashmiri red chilli tempered in oil gives hot red colour appearance. This style of mutton kuzhambu gives very traditional authentic taste.
