We are now back to regular programming with this excellent Mutton Gravy recipe from my mother-in-law’s Kitchen. If you like spicy gravies with chapathis or parathas, then you have come to the right spot. This spicy mouth watering mutton dish will make a perfect companion to different dishes like chapathis, parathas, briyani or even dosas.
