    This is yet another Chettinad delicacy mutton curry. Chettinad cuisine is very famous all over India and popular .The speciality of this lamb curry is the real taste of mutton is fully brought out without using any masala.No coriander powder or chili powder used.The hot taste needed is from whole red chillies and the garlic used only.

    Take a meat cut into small pieces,wash and keep aside. In a pressure cooker add the crushed ginger, onion and garlic pieces. Saute it well. Add the tomato pieces and saute it, then add the meat along with turmeric powder, salt and saute well for 6 to 7 minutes in low fire. Once the meat pieces have changed colour add water and close lid cook it for 4 vessels.
    In a small pan season the curry items are oil, fennel seeds, curry leaf. Now break the chillies into halves and add to the oil.saute for a minute.
    After the pressure releases,open the cooker and transfer the contents into a kadai and cook till the water content if any in the curry gets dried up. Usually this curry is made little dry so that it go well with rice and rasam.
    his curry which is most compatible with rice will be popular among all in south India.Chettinad is also no exception.I dont think there will be much difference in preparation too.Those who dont like curd rice also will like this curry.For those who cannot take curd can also have this without any problem.Usually people use sour curd for the curry.
