There is something that makes mutton incomparable with other kinds of meat; perhaps this is why it is tough to please mutton fans in general. You cannot just serve them any mutton preparation — it better be good in terms of everything, texture and juiciness to flavour. Indians are especially big fans of mutton, and the many legendary mutton preparations are proof. From laal maas to kosha mangsho to mutton biryani, there is really no dearth of enticing mutton delicacies in this country, and you can safely add this mutton bhuna masala to the list as well.
'Bhuna' in Hindi refers to roasted. The spice used in this mouth-watering treat are roasted very well until they get that smoky flavour. Then, they are tossed well with the mutton chunks, giving an uplifting flavour and aroma to the dish.
It is very easy to make mutton bhuna masala at home. Watch the recipe video of Mutton Bhuna Masala here:
