Mutton Stew is a Kerala style Christian dish. It reminds me of my mom’s Christmas and Easter breakfasts in my childhood days. It brings back fond memories of my childhood. During those days I have enjoyed the stew with Palappam or Bread as breakfast, lunch and dinner till the pan get empty. 🙂 yeah! She is an excellent stew maker. Today I will attempt to share that recipe with you. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I do. I usually use home made meat spices masala in my magic kitchen. It gives a special taste and smell.
