You know, there are these awesome food groups on Facebook where you can talk about everything to do with food under the Sun! You learn about new places, ingredients and even get authentic recipes if asked for. One such group is the Mumbai Gourmet Club. I’ve been obsessed with making curries of all kinds and posting them on the blog (as you can see with the Kori Rotti, Butter Chicken, Thai Curry) and yesterday I decided to find the recipe for Laal Maas – a quintessential Rajasthani dish.
But, what I got, rather serendipitously, was the recipe of a spicy, red mutton curry Andhra Style. A fellow foodie Atul Kaul was the one who came to my aid and gave me this very interesting recipe using almost 60 red chillies for 1 kg of mutton! Rather skeptical but very excited to try out the dish, I went ahead.
What I was most excited about during the preparation of the dish is when you mix all the spices and powders together with the yoghurt and then top that with smoking roasted cumin seeds, the flavour of the cumin is woven right into the DNA of the dish!
