It’s been a long time since I posted a recipe. I guess I need some motivation here, come on guys!! cheer me up..

Sunday becomes special when cooking non-veg at home that’s why you can see lots of non-veg recipes in my site :) Especially with mutton I always like to try different recipes each time. I got this recipe from one of my Muslim friends. His food used to be very famous during college days. So after I started cooking I collected a few recipes from him.

Mutton Chops Recipe

I tired this many many times and it always came out good. I usually have this with biriyani, white rice or chapathi.
After adding all the masalas, I usually cook mutton in the pressure cooker. If you allow for 2-3 whistles mutton/goat meat is cooked really soft.
