Bengali Mutton Curry Mangshor Jhol

Mangshor jhol is this word I had been hearing since my early childhood. I didn’t remember any Sunday I missed without Bengali Mutton Curry/Mangshor Jhol. Every Sunday my father used to bring mangsho(mutton) and fish for Grandfather as my Grandfather never touched mutton. So in Bengal ‘Sunday’ and ‘mangshor jhol’ are very synonymous. Actually, the mutton recipe means mangshor jhol which we know since childhood what my mother used to prepare with ada rosun Banta in sil-Nora(ginger garlic paste with the use of an oblong stone piece on a large stone square piece). Now only we came to know there are many recipes we can prepare with mutton. You can visit my other mutton recipes are Mutton & Potato Korma, Mutton Do Pyaza, Holi Special Mutton Masala, spicy kosha pathar mangsho, spicy Kashmiri mutton rogan josh, spicy Rajasthani laal maas,
