Mutton is by far my favourite meat and now that the weather has cooled down considerably, I am back to the kitchen and trying new recipes. I came up with this original recipe yesterday and cooked it for dinner. I love the flavour and aroma of freshly grated coconut which adds a different sort of crunch to the curries. I was very happy with the end result; the curry was flavourful, spicy and very delicious. The well-cooked mutton pieces added perfectly with all the spices. Do give it a shot.

Coconut: 50 grams (freshly grated)
Onions: 3 medium sized (Finely Chopped)
