Mutton/ Lamb Pepper Fry | Mutton Chukka Recipe | Restaurant Style Mutton Pepper Fry

Dull, cold and dark days is what I have been seeing here and its been so cold that all I want to do all day is roll under the sheets and take a long peaceful nap but here I am planning to do a post that is a super hit at home. The pictures were taken in my camera (which I am missing a lot now :( ) and when it was hail and healthy. Somehow this post has been postponed for long now. 

Lamb pepper fry is packed with spicy, rich flavors and is super easy to prepare. It requires a good cut meat, you can use baby lamb shoulder / goat (mutton) for this recipe with/ without bones. Its a side to go along with rice/ chapatti but the way I love it is a kadai rice, where the left over masala is been tossed with rice and relished to the fullest. I got this recipe online and to my surprise this is one dish that I make every time I but lamb it is so good and something that you will end up doing again and again.
