Khasi Ko Masu (Nepali Style Mutton Curry) Recipe!!

I usually make chicken curry (recipe here) and always think both mutton and chicken curry are same. But people disagree!! Especially my friends they are crazy about Khasi ko Masu (Mutton Curry). They say nothing can beat Khasi ko Masu made in Nepali way. Since, it had been a while that I hadn't made one, I decided to make it today and guys seriously my friends are correct. The dish came out to be so delicious and surprisingly the taste was just like what my mom used to make back home :) So, without any further due lets get started :x Also, click here for Nepali Style Pan Fried Mutton (Khasi ko Bhuteko Masu) Recipe!!
