Hope everyone had a great Monday without having to deal with Monday blues. I actually get the blues more on Sunday night, and I’ll be seen running around crazily doing all the chores. When Monday arrives, I’ll be ready to kick start the wonderful week and to experience all the things that’s in store for me.

Last night, I made this goat or mutton curry, and served along with poori. Mutton curry and poori, one of the best combinations, it’s like a match made in the heaven. I know I haven’t yet posted the recipe for making poori, I will be posting it soon. It’s a fried roti and it goes well with almost any curries. I love to have pooris with chicken or mutton curry. Honestly, I don’t make pooris that often since it has to be fried, I prefer chapatis or rotis that are not fried. I had pooris after a very long time and it tasted so damn good with this mutton curry. Usually I don’t add yogurt while making mutton/goat curries, this time I added yogurt and marinated the goat/mutton in it; it turned out to be delicious.
