This is one of mom's "THE BEST" recipes I've come across ever since I stepped into cooking shoes:) This dish can be made using chicken as well instead of mutton, equally delicious and I bet you it'll be enjoyed by one and all. It makes a fantastic meal with hot rotis on a cold ROMANTIC WINTER night.
