Archive for the ‘Mutton’ Category

Every time when either of meat or poultry is bought, it is prepared in excess. I am happy to see the leftovers as it taste better on next day!! This time I thought I will make in variety. I made mutton chaarr the previous day & mutton stew the next day morning. I cooked with some salt in a pressure pan & reserved and then finally boost up with added spice to it.

Good to go with easter menu ” HAPPY EASTER”!!!!

Both the curries go well with either rotis or any of the breakfast items of Kerala origin. My mouth is still watering even while writing! I always take resolution to get rid of fleshy stuffs ; but  to be frank cant help it,,,it makes me irresistible!!!!

Mutton – 1 lb each for both the recipes
