A Railway Mutton Curry

A Railway Mutton Curry

A Railway Mutton Curry also known as a First Class Mutton Curry was what you got served if you travelled First Class on the Indian Railways in years gone by..

Simple ingredients were elevated to a sublime dish using patience and time..

Always cooked on the bone, usually a lovely rich colour that slowly emerges after simmering for a good few hours with optional potatoes and this is a classic dish up there with the best..

Here is ours  which we made for a 90th birthday complete with potatoes and marrow bone..

It will taste it’s best tomorrow once the flavours have developed..

Meanwhile the kitchen doesn’t smell half bad and I’m transported to those many First Class rail journeys I took between Delhi and Calcutta…
