Mutton Chops | Mutton Chukka

Mutton cooked in spices & dry roasted


Who doesn't love a dry roasted mutton dish with less oil & practically no frying? Yes, the recipe for the day is an easy, hassle free & diet friendly mutton sukka or mutton chaps. Actually, you do not need a main course for this dish, you can savour it just like that as a snack. Also you can pair it up with sambar sadam/rasam sadam/puliserry and it would taste heaven ! 

My mom used to make a variation of this dish with chicken but it was at my friend 'D's place during a dinner party that I saw this made with mutton as a dry roast and immediately, me & Deeps fell for it. From the pics, don't think of it as burnt, as my dad commented, it is the colour of the dried onions & masala ;) So what you waiting for, try it out & get accolades from your family & friends & do let me know too :)
