A dish called "mutton curry" is made with goat meat (or occasionally lamb meat) and vegetables. This dish is popular in the regions of South Asia and Carrebian. Traditionally, the mutton curry was made by mixing all the ingredients in an earthen pot and cooking it slowly over a wood fire in a clay oven. Mutton that is cooked consistently becomes more tender than mutton that is cooked typically. Typically, mutton curry is eaten with rice or Indian flatbread like naan or parotta.  Ragi, a cereal, may also be used to accompany the dish. Mutton lababdar is a delicious gravy that is mouth-watering and pleasing to the eye. With its origins tracing back to Punjab, the curry is heavy and thick in texture, your tastebuds are in for a treat when you try this delicacy for the first time!  Mutton lababdar is slow-cooked with butter to add flavour and you can smell the butter-infused mutton that pleases your olfactory senses. Mouth-watering might be too less of a compliment, but that phrase explains mutton lababdar the best.
