Mutton Paya Masala Recipe


Paya Curry is usually enjoyed during the winter season, as it is considered to be heaty and thus perfect for the cold seasons. This paya curry is simply yummy and goes very well with Brun Bread which we popularly call KadakPav (hard bread ) in Bombay. Having said that, for me, it goes best with handmade rice roti’s.
