Mutton/Lamb Chops Masala

  After two sweet food posts, lets go onto something spicy, meaty and classy. Something with a woow factor. Like this mutton chops i made few days back. This recipe, i am telling you will be a keeper for sure. 

 

  I just realized that its been quite sometime since i posted any red meat recipe. Well, that’s because i usually don’t experiment much with mutton or beef. I just make the usual mutton curry or the masala which my husband like. Nothing new, nothing exciting…but yeah it tastes good. But last week, we had got some mutton chops pieces and i assured myself that il do something new with it. So i came up with this recipe, and it came out really good. 

  This is prepared with a mutton/lamb rib piece, cooked to a tender, succulent texture in a flavor packed gravy. Since i wanted to get these ready fast, i pressure cooked the mutton along with the spices and onions, tomato, and ginger garlic and then i fried it in coconut oil. Pressure cooking is such a blessing! The coconut oil awakens the flavors from the spices. 

  This is a very easy recipe and it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser. You can even make it the day before and reheat it at the time of serving, if you want to make this for a party.

  • 400 g mutton/lamb chops
