I see a lot of members here are from abroad so this looks like an appropriate place to ask what they refer to as "Mutton". Goat VS Sheep Mutton in India or may be just North India is Goat meat and Lamb is not something you could find easily. There may be places to get Lamb at Delhi somewhere, but I don't know of any. I did have Lamb when I went to Kashmir for a few days where a friend invited me for dinner at his place and it was very different from the Goat meat that I am used to here in Delhi. The difference between Goat and Lamb is not something you can miss if you are used to one or the other and try the other one. Goat meat has a stronger flavour to it and Lamb is a lot tender as compared to Goat meat. I am told Goat is closer to rabbit, I have never had rabbit meat so cannot comment on that In North India if you ask for mutton, you would be served with Goat meat. Lamb or sheep is not widely available from my own experience. I am not even sure why us Indians eat more Goat as compared to Lamb because I personally find Lamb meat to be a lot better than Goat. I wonder what they call Goat meat and Lamb where you come from and what is the difference between Goat meat and Lamb meat according to you. I would also like to know which one do you prefer Goat or Lamb if given a choice. I am sure there will be many members who have only had one or the other so this thread is going to be an interesting one. I personally find lamb meat to be a lot softer as compared to goat meat.
