Pepper Mutton Chops

Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.Today I am going to share with you guys a non-vegetarian recipe..It is a delicious mutton recipe:"Pepper-Mutton Chops". Last 2-3 weeks we didn't get a chance to visit the halal market. Last day we went there and bought some goat mix.and the  same day I prepared this mutton dish.this one is my husband's favorite one... He likes to have it with appam or chapathi. sometimes we love to have it with bread as well. Nowadays this dish is a very common one in our menu. You can eat 5-6 appam with this chops. Really mouth-watering combo. I got this recipe idea from one of the cookery show..It's  quite different recipe.we are using curd, coconut and dried coconut for the preparation. (If u don't have dried coconut, don't worry, if you have some fresh coconut, just bake it for 10-20 minute in 300F.then that should be better to use for this recipe).The dried coconut is available in all indian groceries.(it is known as Copra).
If u have a plan to prepare this recipe buy the goat-mix (contains both bone-less and bone cuts). While buying the mutton tell them to give the mutton mix. If u try this recipe with boneless, you won't get the exact taste. (By definition Mutton chops means the mutton pieces with bones). Any meat if you prepare with bone would be more tastier than the same with boneless. The bones itself gives nice flavor to the dish.
Its a very spicy one. According to ur taste u can change the spice levels..Try it today itself and enjoy. OK, no more stories today..let me tell you how I prepared this delicious chops..

Rach said...

Pranitha ,
I'm not at all a chawarma fan :(
I used to love it earlier. Born in a family where food is considered to be life, love and evythin... I was a die-hard foodie (complete non-veg freak), who used to eat anythin n evrythin. Interestingly now I don't even eat all that I cook, coz I folow strict ayurvedic diets which are not only veg but also certain ingredients like salt, chillies, mustard,potatoes groundnuts, etc are excluded from the diet ( My Vaidya wants me to avoid it fully, but I do include some).
I love south Indian veg food , tiffin , meals etc. Which is very similar to Ayurvedic diet. But, all at home are such great non-veg food lovers, That I cook it for them :)

Rach said...

Yes Pranitha I do consume veg food only as per my ayurvedic diets. At home, As I said Non-veg is most loved so I have many non-veg recipes are cooked in my kitchen :) Sometimes, My hubby goes into diet mode, that's when salads, healthy plats, chawarma, chappathi rolls etc. comes into scene.

Rina said...

Absolutely luv this mutton chops gravy..

vineetha said...

wow wow wow..I wish I have that plate here..I always buy boneles lamb from supermarket,u r right the boneless one is not as good as one with bones..I must go to butchers next time.

Step2:
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the diluted curd into the oil and let it boil for 2-3 minutes.
Add the Sliced onion into the curd mix.saute the onions until they are golden and transparent

I am confused about this step...after adding diluted curd..I think it will become all watery...how are the onions going to be golden and transparent? just needed to clear the doubt before trying it out.
