Mutton Curry with Potatoes

Mutton & Potato curry is one of my favorite dishes which I learnt from my Granny.This is the classic comfort food whenever we had family gatherings. It is actually a very simple dish but invokes a lot of good memories. You can make the dish with small baby potatoes or big chunks of potatoes whichever you like :) …. As you can see above we make it with both styles ….. I hope you like the Dish and the love that comes with it as you can see the pure joy my Grandma finds in her cooking  ~ :) Happy Cooking !
