I love to eat mutton in any preparation, but do you have any experience of 'mutton kosha'? I would love to know your story. Because this dish is one of the traditional Bengali curries. We slow cook the mutton in its own juices with gravy and spices, thats why the end result always becomes finger licking good. You can serve 'mutton kosha' along with 'steamed rice', mishti pulaao, 'luchi', 'porota' and 'plain roti'. Believe me every combo will make your lunch or dinner special everytime. Try this in your own kitchen and make your family haapy.
