Kothu Kari Kulambu | Mutton Keema Curry

Keema is a minced meat of any kind and in this recipe we are using mutton (goat meat) to make this spicy gravy which goes well with parotta, idli, dosa or poori. Normally, this we make on a festival morning as a breakfast for hot idlis and dosa back home. Getting the freshly butchered meat which is hand minced with little fat and soft meat which I totally miss here in Bangalore, most of the meat sold here are just minced using a machine and does not have the right texture nor taste that I use to enjoy back in my home town.

Kothu Kari Kuzhambu or mutton keema curry recipe is roughly chopped onions, ginger and garlic paste which make the base of the keema curry. Cooking the mutton keema in this base along with some everyday dry masalas in a pressure cooker brings out all the flavours at once.

Serve Kothu Kari Kuzhambu Recipe along with Steamed Rice or eat it along with Ghee Roast Dosa Recipe - Crispy Paper Dosa Recipe for a simple yet delicious meal.

Notes :

  • Tomatoes can be added if you need the gravy to have tanginess.

  • Thick coconut milk should be added at the final stage or else it may spoil the curry.

  • Shallots can be added more for taste.

  • Homemade sambar powder is grinding sun dried red chilli, corriander seed and cumin in equal quantity. Normally, I prefer using them.
