This is a very popular dish from Mughlai cuisine in India. In this recipe medium size mutton pieces are cooked in a white, creamy, nut based rich gravy. 'Rezala' goes best with naan, biriyani, roti or paratha. I have already posted several recipe on 'rezala'. The dish has a very unique taste. It is neither very spicy nor very sweet. I made this last week and thoroughly enjoyed it with plain rice. Try this easy recipe in your kitchen and enjoy a lovely dinner with your family.
