Mutton Kheema Curry | Kothu Kari Kuzhambu | Non Veg Recipe

Kothu Kari Kuzhambu, a delicious and spicy curry made from the minced mutton. In our home, while we growing up, we liked minced mutton more than the regular mutton,so Amma often made it for our weekend lunch. But that's quite different from what i'm sharing today, usually Amma made them as dry curry sort of like egg podimas with very mild spices for the kids in the family. Just now i realized still i haven't shared that recipe, will share soon. Now coming to today's recipe, i came to know about this curry from Sivagasi samayal few months back and immediately i bookmarked it to try later. At last, last weekend i got the minced mutton from the near by meat market and without much thought i made this kothu kari kuzhambu with few variations from the original recipe to suit our liking. As expected, it turned out so delicious and it's really hard to stop licking our fingers after having this curry with poori. Let's check out the recipe now.
