The winter terns into Spring and much awaited festival Holi is just in the corner. This is celebrated with great enthusiasm across the India and so at my parent in-laws house in Mithila too. There is a tradition to prepare variety of Mutton dishes on the occasion.
This year I am planing to cook “Sukha Mutton (Restaurant Style Dry Mutton)” too. The recipe is perfect for evening snacks for the people who visit for Holi-Milan. Just drizzle fresh lemon juice and fried ginger Julian; it adds lots of flavour, which is truely mouth watering.
The Mutton is something that mutton-lover never say “No” just have it with Paratha, Chapati, Bhakhari, Tandoori Roti or Naan.
Mutton-Rice on Sunday afternoon; it is most comforting meal in our house since decades. My husband is Mutton-lover; all most all Sunday I prepare Mutton recipes. Do try these recipe too; like
