I decided to make a different recipe of mutton. So I searched my bookshelf and took the non vegetarian cook book. Yes , I was having a Tamil cookbook specially for all non vegetarian recipes. I always choose a recipe which can be made with the ingredients available in pantry.
The recipe must be easy to cook too , as i like less time to spend on cooking.
On searching the book , I stopped at this gosht ke pasand recipe. It was simple and easy to make with few ingredients. I prepared this for a Sunday lunch and served with Brinji rice.
