Is it ok if I use 2tsp of corriander powder 1 tsp of chilli pwdr fr half kilo of mutton

    • The mutton curry is more delicate and stew like- hence less spicegoes well with the delicious fresh mutton.. but if you like more spice and thick curry , you can add to suit your taste definitely. Btw my upcoming ebook willcontain some delicious curries that are not available on RAS. Just thought I’d let u know .
