Here I present a collection of Mutton Recipes for Eid ul Adha that are specially made on Bakra Eid. For easy navigation, I divide the collection into mutton cuts and mutton mince.
Mutton or Lamb?
First of all let’s clear little confusion, in India / Pakistan mutton is meat of goat, usually young goat. Lamb is considered the meat of sheep. While internationally, lamb means the meat of young goat (kid) and mutton means the meat of old goat. That’s why I used both terms.
Honestly, I wished to post these Mutton recipes round up next year with many more recipes but then I changed my mind as seasonal roundups really help easy navigation of the site. Please mention your favourite mutton recipe requests in the comment.
