Mutton Vathakal / Mutton Masala

Cooking Time  : 30 mins
Serves              : 3 no

Dear Friends, I am back from my long vacation and I am very happy to blog again. I have missed blogging so much all these days.. To start up with my blogging again, i thought of sharing this spicy Mutton Recipe which is popular in our side. I got a chance to cook this flavourful recipe in my inlaw home and it turned out spicy and tasty. It is very simple to make without much ingredients. It is very easy to make as it does not even include tomato,ginger garlic paste, yet tasted good.It goes well with Rice, Dosa, Roti. Just give a try and you will definitely fall in love with it..

Big Onions                2 no

Chilli powder             1 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder          1 tsp
Salt                          To Taste
Coriander Leaves       To Garnish
