Mutton Stew

Stew is prepared by cooking solid food in liquids at low temperature.Cooking at low temperature gives a nice flavor to food.Slow cooker is best for making stew.If you don't have slow cooker no problem you can use normal pan or pressure cooker.As I believe whenever cook stew always use whole garam masala not powdered.The whole garam masala enhance the aroma and flavor of food.This is my family recipe.My mother taught me how to prepare.
