Kerala Village Style Mutton Curry ! / Mutton cooked in roasted coconut gravy !

My today’s recipe is a mutton curry.A curry that throws out the tempting aroma of spices,simmered in flavorful roasted coconut gravy.This is a typical Kerala village style preparation with lots of spices and coconut.One thing I can assure you,this is a winner..Do try.


500 gm mutton,cut into medium pieces
1 medium onion,sliced
1/2 cup shallots,crushed
2 green chillies,sliced
1 small piece of ginger,crushed
4-5 garlic cloves,crushed
2 tomatoes,cut into 8 pieces,each
3 tbsp coriander powder
2 tsp kashmiri chilly powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 cup water

1 tsp coconut oil
1 cup grated coconut
1 inch piece cinnamon
2 cloves
2 cardamoms
1/2 tsp fennel seeds

    It was only this morning, I wondered why your recipe was not seen on the blog. I could not presume that you ran out of invention, polishing , and innovation. Then here it is back again.
