Ghati Mutton Masala Curry

For mutton lover's I promise this could be the perfect curry.... here I present my favourite Ghati mutton masala curry. As  I'm from Ghat's i have seen this recipe from my childhood. Ok now let me tell you about Ghat's most of the people don't know anything about the ghati. This Ghati word is different from the uncouth/gavthi sense Marathi people use it in. It literally means, someone from the Ghaats (mountains). Ok back to our recipe :) I have used ghati masala in this which is very common on Maharashtrian's house. A perfect dinner menu for weekend Marathi's usually eat Bhakri ( jowar/ bajra roti) and steam rice with onion. So enjoy your weekend :)
