The Mutton Mysore has to be one of the most delectable mutton dishes. The tender mutton is cooked slowly to bring out the flavour of the meat, infusing it with the tanginess of fresh tomatoes and a firework of spices. We call it the mutton mysore rajah because it’s one of our favourites and our recipe is exquisite! The best part is that it isn’t hard to make at all. It’s so good, it’s bound to be a hit at parties!
