Roasted Mutton Curry - Valentine's Day Special

On Valentine's Day my husband surprised me with a very special mutton dish. He is a good cook, specially with different types of meat recipes. Even our friends love the mutton dishes he makes. He made a mutton curry and yet again it tasted awesome! He referred Vah-chef Sanjay Thumma's recipe of Rara Gosht.

Vah-chef is simply a genius at his art. His videos are a reflection of his passion towards cooking. Both me and my husband follow Vah-chef on social media. His website VahrehVah is a treasure trove of his many creations and each single item looks perfectly crafted. We have already tried many of his recipes and have never been disappointed. The best part of Vah-chef's recipe is that he uses common ingredients and explores simple ways of preparing them. His videos are fun to watch too! He is a live wire in them and is an expert at presentation. Towards the end of these videos, specially when the food is ready, happiness reflects all over his face. His excitement for tasty food is so viral, this alone will make you want to prepare those items. And his tagline is so appropriate:  "It's is all about inspiring others to cook"
