Chikkudukaya Mutton curry recipe with step by step instructions.
I learned this recipe from my father-in-law(he is a good cook and really loves to cook for us).he prepares mutton curry with fresh organic Broad beans which are grown in the back yard.he told me that “if you have a habit of eating non-veg regularly, then it’s good to cook along with the vegetables.so that it gets digested easily and try to avoid masala”.and I totally agree on that.
the matter that always frightens me is worms.Oh! my God.I open each pod in a fear that there may be a worm inside.my father-in-law use to mix the ash with water and spray on the plants to prevent the beans from pests.taste of the curry depends on the beans.you need to choose fresh pods with full of beans in them.
In the recipe below, I have added broad beans to the half-cooked mutton curry and re-cooked them together.this is because the mutton takes a longer time to get cooked.the second way is to boil the beans separately in salt water and add them to the fully cooked mutton curry.after adding, you need to cook them together for at least 5-7 minutes and then turn off the heat.
this recipe goes well with rice and rotis.Try and enjoy this beautiful recipe.happy cooking :).
