My mutton curry recipe with dried fenugreek leaves

Sunday’s menu has always been special for our family. And it’s all the more important now since all other days of the week I cook for the family in a jiffy and focusing on their health needs. After all, cooking takes a lot of your time on palate and when you are a working mom it’s a luxury to be honest. My husband had bought a kilo of mutton last Sunday for poila baishakh. I cooked half of it and half of it I had stored for the next Sunday. The mutton I had cooked on Poila baishakh was awesome. That was with the meat masala readily available in the market. But today I planned to cook something right from scratch. I had time of course in my hand. And yes something our family had never tasted before. It had to be original as well😊 So here goes my mutton curry recipe with dried fenugreek leaves.
