Mutton Curry | Lonumedhu

Mutton Curry


The meat just falls off the bone in this flavour packed mutton curry. There are two steps to getting the meat this juicy and tender. First is the marination step in which lime and ginger tenderizes the meat prior to cooking. Then there’s the long cooking time which helps break down the fibers of the meat.

In our recipe we’ve used Currymia Frozen Bone In Mutton Cubes which we got from one of our partners Standard & Origin (S&O). The meat has a fresh, clean smell and when cooked, it’s not rubbery at all.


Serves: 2



For the marinade

  • 1 tsp. grated ginger
  • 1 tsp. grated garlic
  • 450g Currymia Frozen Bone In Mutton Cubes

  • 1 ½ tsp. coriander powder
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste

  1. Grate the garlic and ginger (you need 1 tsp. of each for the marinade and 2 tsp. each for the curry).
  2. Wash the mutton pieces thoroughly. And pat dry the mutton.
  3. Place the mutton in a bowl, add lime juice, grated garlic and ginger with salt and mix everything together. Cover and keep in the fridge to marinate for around 15 minutes.
