The week has just begun and you’re already feeling a little low. You know what can up your spirits? A delicious meal. There is no doubt about the fact that good food actually leads to a good mood. Food is believed to arouse feelings of happiness and satisfaction in you and motivate you to work better. If your mother has made your favourite pasta or pizza for dinner tonight, wouldn’t you want to rush back home earlier than usual. That’s the effect food has on us. 

Mutton curries enjoy a wide fan base in the country. The flavourful red meat is quite a treat to the taste buds when prepared with aromatic Indian spices. Across the Indian sub-continent, mutton curries are made in a variety of ways. It could be a fiery and hot curry or a creamy and smooth one but what remains constant is the meat. Mutton is believed to release its own set of juices into the dish which elevate the overall taste. 

To lift up your spirits and give your dinners a meaty touch, here are some mutton curries that you should definitely try. 

1.  Andhra Mutton Curry 

Hot, fiery and spicy, this delicious mutton curry from Andhra Pradesh is pure bliss. If your heat-o-meter is high then this curry is for you. Tender mutton pieces are cooked in a tomato and onion gravy, which is spruced up with curry leaves and bay leaves. Whole spices are used for a rich flavour. 

2.  Rajasthani Mutton Curry 

Also known as laal maas, this is a popular mutton curry from the region. Made with Kashmiri chillies and a host of other spices, it has a rich and vibrant colour and aroma. The Rajasthani mutton curry is cooked in a curry of ginger, garlic, onions and yoghurt. It makes the gravy thick and balances the heat of the spices. 

3.  Railway Mutton Curry 

This mutton curry comes with a legacy of historical flavours. Prevalent during the time of British Raj, when India was yet to be independent, the Indian Railways served a mildly spiced mutton curry to the passengers travelling on the first class coach of the train. This is what gave the curry its interesting name and has remained with it ever since. 

4.  Kashmiri Mutton Curry 

Amidst the range of red, hot and spicy mutton curries, you’ll find this white and creamy curry from Kashmir. Cooked in ghee, along with cardamom, onion powder and other spices, the tender mutton is dunked in a pool of milk and enjoyed. Garnish with saffron strands and enjoy.
