I am back again with another wonderful recipe from Andhra. Every Sunday, there has to be non-vegetarian dish at my place as we all are non-veg lovers at home. My dad n my husband both love mutton/lamb among all other non-vegetarian dishes. So I keep looking out on the new options and ways to cook mutton. No matter what ever I cook, this old and native recipe which my grandmom cooks is the best. The addition of spices is what makes it what it is. You will agree once you taste it.
