This is something we often had growing up in Sri Lanka. However in Sri Lanka we would have mutton. Sunday lunch is something special at our home. I did not like much of that due to the heavy use of spices. I created some of these for my extended family and friends and they love and crave these, which was our Sunday dishes. I would like to call.
I have never seek out to buy mutton in US. However I would substitute it with lamb. I do not eat meat any more but do cook them for friends. So when we were invited for a friends dinner. I simply offered to make this dish for them.
As you can see it has many spices, cooked in tomato, and in a yogurt bath.
