Mutton Chops Masala


Already I have shared Mutton chops recipe – Mutton chops, Mutton chops – 2 but this one is completely different from those. It was delicious, aromatic and attractive. The taste still keeps drooling in my mouth. I have accompanied it with Steamed rice and Rasam. Let us move on to the recipe…

Since it’s Friday, I am taking it to Fiesta Friday #81 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
