Chettinad Elumbu Kuzhambu Recipe - Lamb Bone Curry Recipe

Did you know that mutton bone has more flavour that the meat. When you make soup or curries try using mutton with bones for maximum flavour and taste. This is a delicious curry which i made using mutton or lamb bones, i added drumstick and potatoes in this for more taste. This is a village style style recipe and goes extremely well with appam, idiyappam, rice, roti, idli or dosa..

I used a pressure cooker to cook the lamb bones. if you dont have a pressure cooker, you can just cook it in a pot, it may take a lot of time to cook but still it will taste great..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
