Nadan Mutton Curry/ Kerala Mutton Curry




Nadan Mutton curry

Nadan mutton curry is deliciously spicy and a much-coveted dish in restaurants and eateries in Kerala. This luscious flavored mutton curry has the deep essence of Kerala cooking, with aromatic spices and coconut abundantly available in the state. If you wish for some spicy non vegetarian weekend meal, here is one to relish. This curry is magical, with few ingredients, but with great flavors. For me, it is a homey dish that my family adores. It tastes divine with Kerala parottas or with soft lacy appam, you can also serve this steamed rice, puttu, or chapati.

Naadan mutton curry is easy to make. What makes this dish flavorful and inviting is the flavor of fresh ground masala, coconut oil, and the fresh taste of curry leaves. In this recipe, I have also added mint. I love adding fried mint in my homemade mutton curry just like my mom( but it is optional). There are chilies- lots of them for a fiery look, and I prefer Kashmiri chilly, which has color and less heat. Together with earthy spices and black pepper, the gravy has the right balance of taste and flavor. The curry is aromatic and flavorful with warm earthy spices, onion, ginger and garlic curry leaves, and coconut oil. Fried coconut bits add a crunch and a little sweetness to every bite. The gravy is rich and delicious, and the meat is slow-cooked till it is succulent and tender. You can use a pressure cooker or an Instant pot, and it is easy to put together in under 30 minutes. So get your ingredients together and try this recipe. Let me know how it turned out for you:)

12 Delicious Jackfruit Recipes- Kerala Cuisine

  12 Delicious Jackfruit Recipes- Kerala Cuisine Jackfruit is the most versatile of all tropical fruits. It is a common fruit in Kerala and South India. When in the season, it is considered a staple food. The sheer variety of recipes with jackfruit is quite astounding. No wonder it is known as the official fruit of the Kerala state! Ripe jack fruit has a firm texture and tastes like honey. It adds an exotic taste to desserts. The young or tender jack fruit is used for savory dishes and has a meaty texture. The unripe one has a neutral flavor, and we use it to make mashed jack fruit/puzhukku, and it tastes best with spicy fish curry. The edible part of this fruit is the yellow sheath around the seeds, but when it is unripe it will be white.
