Lamb Intestine Stir-Fry / Aatu Kodal Vathakkal

This is my second post with lamb intestine, in my childhood my mom use to keep this atleast once in a month but I haven’t tasted instead simply use to say I don’t like it. But later when I tasted it in a hotel after the completion of my friend, wow I could say that it’s yummy and thenafter I used to have it whenever I go to that restaurant in chennai because due to laziness in cleaning the intestine. But when I am to bangalore I don’t have a chance to taste it, finally came to a conclusion and decided cleaning the intestine although it’s a tough job, it’s worth because my kids loved it.

Already I have a posted a curry recipe with lamb intestine and this time a dry recipe. I love this a lot more than the curry. Let us move on to the recipe…
