Mutton Keema Curry

Mutton keema curry or kothukari kulambu is a very tempting dish for the sunday morning with hot puff pooris.... :-) This dish is prepared from minced goat meat. It is a very easy dish and also tasty combo. Vegetarians who miss this yummy mutton curry or people who miss them on auspicious day can try my soya keema curry which is equally yummy. The flavor and aroma of the spices makes even the kids to love and eat.
