Kothu Kari | Mutton Kheema Curry | Non Veg Recipes

Kothu Kari, a delicious and easy to make side dish with minced mutton. We have been making this for decades in our home and it's another one of the signature dish of my grandma. In this recipe, the flavors and spices are subtle and it's looks more like egg podimas, so we usually serve this with kara kulambu or sambar, those combinations are amazingly well. If you're wondering how the mutton would taste with sambar or with veg curry, you can have it with rasam, thats also a another great choice, but trust me, with sambar or kara kulambu it tastes so good. 
Coming to the recipe, i have the pictures of this recipe in my draft for a while. Last month when amma had prepared this kothu kari, i clicked pictures to post here. But after with all the packing and making travel plans, i couldn't find time (read as not interested :-)) to sit and write the recipe. As i mentioned in my previous post about our moving plan to new place, after 5+ months of pampering at India, now we're moved to Canada. Things are getting slowly settled and it may take another couple of weeks to post here regularly. Mean time, give it a try on this simple and delicious kothu kari recipe.
