Spicy Mutton Meatball Curry-Women's Day Special

Indian cuisine's specialty is curries and spicy gravies. India is full of spices and food without it tastes very bland. All parts of India have at least one kind of spicy specialty. Now, I guess I spoke more about India than the dish. I thought of making this spicy mutton meatball curry while my daughter was studying India's Freedom Struggle. Many brave women played a major role in India's freedom struggle. So, why not make this curry on the ocassion of Women's Day. It's not very spicy, but has the necessary hotness and finds usage of all the spices. I am sure this will taste great! Do try it out! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe!! Njoy!!) Happy Women's Day!! :)
