Lamb Eggplant Stew / Aatu kari Katharikkai Kulambu / ஆட்டு கரி கத்தரிக்காய் குழம்பு

I am a great fan of mutton recipes . This recipe is my grand mothers recipe which is passed to my mom and now to me . When I was a kid my mom makes this recipe weekly once and I used to love this .  The combination gives a unique flavor and taste which will surely impress the one to whom you are cooking for . It requires 4 major ingredients and made quickly too .
