Mutton Chukka | Mutton Dry | Indian Mutton Sidedish

This recipe is special as it turns out be my 50th post.Wanted to post something interesting and when I prepared this thought it would be the apt one. Its flavor is unique and will attract all non veg lovers. All my friends who came for his birthday party liked this one a lot. It is a must try dish !!!. I just added potatoes to increase the quantity. You can try with or without it.Both ways it is great.

Mutton chukka is one of our favorite dish. It is a peppery side dish that can be had with rice.
