Kerala Mutton Curry is one of the delicious recipe, in which mutton is cooked with coconut milk, making it a flavoursome dish. It is very popular in South India especially in Kerala, where they use a lot of coconut products in their recipes. Coconut is very good for health also. In this curry, I have not used ready made coconut milk, instead, I prepared it at home, by blending the coconut pieces.
