Recipe Notes

Mutton - This dish is at its best when made using bone-mutton pieces as the bones tend to release juice in the gravy. It’s better to get the goat legs for this recipe. For an authentic taste, use mustard oil. Instead, you can use dollops of ghee or vegetable oil.

For an extra kick of flavour, use garam masala in the end before seasoning it with coriander leaves.

The authenticity of the dish relies mostly on the oil and the spices. If you’re in Melbourne, I recommend you guys order whole Indian Spices, Indian Groceries, and Srilankan Spices from Vel Spices to make your spicy dishes taste authentic and irresistible.
