matan recipe



Matan, also known as Mutton Curry, is a traditional dish from the Kashmir valley in Northern India. It is a delicious and flavorful dish made from a mixture of mutton pieces and a blend of spices. The curry is slow-cooked for more than two hours to tenderize the meat and blend the flavors, which makes the dish even more delectable. It is typically served with plain rice or naan bread.
