Hello everyone! Would you agree with me if I said that food and genetics go hand-in-hand!? Not just taste or food preferences, some recipes just like our genes are passed on from one generation to another. I am sure, every household and every kitchen has some secrets in the form of recipes that are only shared and handed down to the next generations. Among many such recipes, the one that is loved and cherished the most in my family is called mutton curry papa style and has been a secret for the last 20 or so years. But, its time I share it with the world and tell everyone how amazing this dish is!
No amount of words would be enough for me to describe in appropriate capacity how much this dish is loved in my family. Every time we have a get together at our home, this dish gets requested every single time, without fail! My brother, his friends, my friends, my husband, his family, each of us is a huge fan.
Since the time I can remember, I have seen my papa toiling away in the kitchen for hours every Monday which used to be his weekly off. He would cook us chicken curry or seekh kabab curry or biryani and most often, this mutton curry. Now the interesting fact here is that my father turned vegetarian about 20 years back yet manages to cook such amazing non vegetarian delicacies without even tasting once. He tells me that he relies on his nose and goes by his sense of smell! Honestly, I don’t know how he does it and I would be able to believe him if I didn’t see him myself doing that!
So. After almost a year of cajoling by my dear husband, I asked papa for the secret recipe. Truth be told, I was so skeptical and scared. After all those were some big golden shoes that I was trying to fit into! Nevertheless, I decided to give it a go and was pretty close to what he does, if I may say so myself. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.
I hope you try this recipe and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Till next time…
