  • Do not add too much of water while cooking the mutton because the mutton will also release lot of moisture (we want our chukka to be dry)
  • Especially for mutton recipes use shallots because shallots enhances the taste of our mutton recipes
  • If you want the mutton to be extra spicy add 2 tsp chili powder while cooking the mutton
  • Mutton takes lot of time to cook,so always use pressure cooker.
