    Nirupa's Note:

    I love spicy cooking once in a week. Its not only mouth watering and makes you feel like you ate a hearty meal. This is obviously only for those who like a little spice in their dishes. You can eat this with rice, chappati, dosa, idli, puttu, kappa. This meal can be made easily in a pressure cooker which is the way i have instructed. However cooking the normal way takes a little longer and its adds more to the flavours. You can also preserve this dish in the fridge for about 3 days.

      This is a good recipe. Since i don't have a pressure cooker, i had to simmer the mutton in a mixture of blended fresh tomato, fresh red chillies, ginger, garlic, onion and chilli powder until the meat is tender. Then, i followed the recipe as above.

      My husband is Indian and I made this for him and he loved it. The flavours are fantastic. Anytime there is a good recipe using a pressure cooker I'm in. I have two young children and don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. Will be making this again for sure!
