Our cravings are at an all-time high during the winters. It is that time of the year when we like to keep ourselves warm inside our homes and experiment with our diet. And what is a better way to experiment than try some of the best mutton curries? Filled with traditional spices, these curries keep us warm and active. They also supply the vital nutrients required by our body to keep our immune system intact. Spices like cloves, cardamom, coriander powder, mace and nutmeg also add to the flavour of the meat.
A key step in cooking meat and enriching its flavour is marination. Leaving meat pieces soaked in herbs, spices and yoghurt, curd or vinegar for a few minutes makes them suitable for easy cooking.
