There is nothing more satisfying for a meat-lover than digging in a bowl full of mutton curry or a mutton steak. Some like it fleshy and juicy while some might like it minced, but there's no denying the fact that tender red meat offers an extraordinary taste along with loads of protein. Besides this, mutton is also considered as a fairly good source of vitamin B-12, iron and zinc. Even though mutton is packed with all this, due to its high amount of fat and cholesterol content, it is advisable to consume mutton in moderation.
But who said you can't have some amazing mutton even when consuming moderately? Mutton is a heavy dish with rich texture and flavour, and while a mutton lover might prefer it every day, it is made usually on special occasions. The popularity of mutton is also due to how versatile this meat is, be it mutton korma, mutton cutlets or kebabs, mutton is simply perfect to toss into anything. But there's one mutton treat that we simply can't get over and that is the aromatic mutton pulao.
