Mutton Stew is a mild spicy and aromatic Indian curry/Stew with fresh and tender meat, some Kerala spices and milk. In Kerala it is very popular among Kerala Christians. Appam (Rice Pancake) and Mutton Stew is an indispensable pair of dishes for them in their weddings, Christmas and Easter celebrations.
Even at my wedding in Kerala, this awesome combo was a highlight starter with crunchy beef cutlets (Indian beef croquettes) and my Singaporean hubby always mention that tempting memories other than our exchange of wedding vows 😉 😀 yeah! It was delicious!
From my childhood I am a great fan of this combo and I already shared that taste to you HERE with my mom’s mutton stew recipe 🙂 Now I am trying to give you it’s easier and simple version (Pressure Cooker Mutton Stew), try and enjoy 🙂
