Aatu / Mutton Urundai Kuzhambu / Meat Balls (lamb) in Spicy Gravy recipe

Mutton Kola urundai kuzhambu, Keema/Kaima urundai kuzhambu, Mutton urundai kuzhambu – all mean the same : a tasty, spicy Meat Ball Curry. 

One such amazing cooking experience that I could watch was that of Urundai Kuzhambu with Lamb. Urundai literally translates as ’round’ and is used for all round structures or believed to be round – including the world. Hence, Sweet Balls like Laddus are also known as Urundai and Meat Balls are also denoted by the term Urundai and more so, the Lentil Balls are Paruppu Urundai.

A special thanks to my MIL who thought me this wonderful and amazing recipe to me. This recipe prepared by MIL, i capture pics next to her. This recipe capture on my vacation to india. Due to system problem, i lost my data. Somehow, collected pics and sharing this wonderful, delicious recipe.
