Hello Anitha,

The Mutton kulambu came really fantastic for me. I am not sure, whether I could make like this again. But I guess, I can, as I have just followed your steps.

Thanks for the nice recipe, I will keep looking for more non-veg recipes :)

Hello Anitha,
I love mutton kulumbu. I add handful of mint leaves to all my meat items (mutton, chicken,etc) to take out the gamey taste. This tricks works very well. I am going to try your recipe. Thank you for posting.
