Mutton keema curry/ Minced mutton curry (Updated)

This was my first post(without pic) and now updating the same recipe with the picture 🙂 🙂

Minced mutton curry is  a  delicious and flavourful south indian curry in which minced mutton (kothukari in tamil) is cooked along with whole and powdered Indian spices with onion and tomato. I like to have this curry with chapathi. It tastes good with full of flavours and also easy to make. For Mutton chukka recipe, refer here and Mutton bone soup, refer here
