Origin of east Indian mutton curry

This curry, a traditional dinner meal cooked with red goat meat, is one of the most popular dishes for Easter. It is popular in many parts of the world and can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as mutton curry with coconut, which is popular in South Asia. Mughals, according to some historical accounts, brought this curry to India. Soon after, it became quite famous, and people began making it with true East Indian spices, earning it the moniker “East Indian Mutton Curry.” Mutton dishes were first made by combining all the ingredients in a handmade earthen pot, and patiently cooking the entire dish over a wood fire.
