Mutton is the most preferred meat in India , since the majority of Hindus do not eat Beef,mutton is a delicacy meat to prepare special dishes like biryani, pulao and korma's. Muslims excel in making dishes prepared in mutton. Mutton is the meat of a LAMB that is more than one year old. Many restaurants in Tamilnadu make specialty dishes out of mutton and the most famous ones are the Chettinad cuisine restaurants; here is a speciality I got , the main flavour of the dish is from the Curry leaves , hence the name..............
