Mutton Kola Urundai one of my favourite dish. This is nothing but the mutton kheema(minced meat) made into balls and deep fried. Last time when we had in a hotel my 3yr old son was fond of it and he loved it. So I thought of preparing myself in home, finally the dish came out very well. Also I was appreciated by my kids, they just enjoyed them.
