Mutton Curry with Fenugreek, Coconut and Curry Leaves

  One of my maa’s recipes has been the inspiration for this recipe today. I have a distinct memory of this afternoon when I see my maa emerging out of the kitchen holding a stainless steel container and setting it on the table. It was a mutton curry she had tried out for the very first time. It was pale with fresh green curry leaves in it: quite different from our usual bright looking Bengali mutton curries.

Mangshor Jhol – Bengali Mutton Curry

The very sound of “Mangshor Jhol “ sends me right back to my ma’s kitchen. I impatiently walked around the dining room as the pressure cooker hissed and whistled, and with every hiss the aroma of the curry already wafting in the air intensified. I see my children doing the same; they rush down the stairs and keep asking every half a minute if “meal is ready”. I do not know if it is strange or magical, but I seem to be… […]
