Mutton Ridge Gourd Curry

Mutton Ridge Gourd Curry - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
My mom and grand ma use to prepare mutton (goat/lamb) curry with brinjal (baby eggplant) and potato and also I have shared those recipes with you. But this curry is completely different when I heard through one of my friend that they use to prepare mutton curry with Ridge gourd and also she told me to give a try. I too gave a try, the curry was awesome and the ridge gourd very delicious when combined with mutton. It goes out well with steamed rice and dosa.
