Mutton Curry is one such thing which brightens the weekend. Mutton brings with itself the exotic tantalizing taste which is very addictive. This tasty mutton curry with rice is something which I look forward to on weekends. This is an easy mutton curry recipe which is a lot simplified but still delivers the taste of traditional mutton curry.  The addition of freshly ground masala adds a lot of flavor to the mutton pieces.
