Chettinad mutton Kulambu recipe

I’m up with a special curry from chettinad, I love their cuisine, they are spicy, flavorful, full of freshly grated masala and spice powder.

No pre-ground spice powder is allowed in the kitchen. Where is that fat. This curry is a perfect example of that. It has tons and tons of flavor wrapped up. Just try this and tell me how it went for you.
