By Ranjani Raj @ranjaniskitchen

Mutton kulambu recipe / Kari kulambu – here the delicious mutton kuzhambhu recipe made by amma. There is no competent for amma’s nonveg preparation.  If it is a restaurant, relatives home or friend’s place, I never get the taste like amma, especially nonveg recipes. Particularly meen kuzhambhu. Me, brother and sister won’t eat fish in restaurants or anywhere. We don’t like the taste anyways. When I asked amma to make mutton kuzhambhu for my blog, she made it as very simple and easy to follow a recipe. And she told me that while we share the recipe with others, it must be simple and made with available ingredients. So here is uncomplicated and very palatable Kari kulambu.
