Jungli Mutton

4 from 1 vote

This recipe is straight from my mother's cookbook. She had come across the name of the dish somewhere and knew that it had something to do with nutmeg but had no idea about the recipe. So she decided to make a dish using nutmeg and mutton with her own recipe. The dish came out fantastic and everyone at home simply loved it. Sharing her recipe here so that my readers too can try this out and relish.
