Restaurent style Mutton Sukka Varuval | Chettinad Mutton Chukka Varuval | Spicy Lamb or Goat fry

 Mutton Sukka Varuval
 Mutton Sukka Varuval
Mutton Sukka Varuval / Chetinad Mutton Chukka, is a die for recipe. I remember having many mutton chukka recipes in different South Indian restaurants that are adored with so much oil and spices that at the end of it although the recipe was amazing you end up having a difficult time digesting the whole thing. Certainly home cooked food tastes much better and I am a bandwagon to this, I believe that we can replicate any kind of restaurant recipe and make it at home with the best local ingredients. See let me give you an example for this recipe I used just 1 tbsp of oil for 1/2 kg mutton and it served 5 people. Try making this for the meat lovers at home and see the kind of love they shower at you.

Chettinad cooking is well known for their taste and freshly ground spices and for this mutton chukka I used freshly made ground spice mix. I have cooked the mutton pieces to tender and then coated it in the masala/ thick paste and added the ground spices to give it that heated edge and flavour.

Cooks Wisdom

Tip 1
