Mutton/Lamb masala curry is popular in south India served in south Indian non-vegetarian restaurants. Mutton (Lamb) cooked with blended spices, onion, tomato and coconut milk to form spicy thick masala gravy. Mutton masala curry tastes awesome and can be served with white rice, Indian breads, biryani and any rice dish. I use this gravy as a spread for bread.
