Mutton Stew

Total cooking time

50 minutes



Mutton stew is a coconut based Mutton recipe which is enjoyed in Kerala along with the breakfast dishes like appam, idiyappam, puttu, bread etc. In this recipe, mutton is cooked in pressure cooker separately. People in Kerala prefer it during various occasions like Christmas, Easter, marriage ceremonies etc.

I am basically not a mutton lover when it is prepared in other forms. But this stew recipe is very tasty where the mutton is completely immersed in aromatic coconut milk and spices. Adding cashew nuts makes it much more tastier. Try this recipe of mutton on your next upcoming occasion and do enjoy an amazing dish.
