Spicy Mutton Fry


I love it when D comes up with a specific request. That makes things a lot more easier for me. The other day, when I mentioned my plan to prepare mutton, his only requirement was that it should be spicy. I went ahead with the preparation, adding things along the way. Thus a Spicy Mutton Fry was created 🙂
You may adjust the amount of chillies to suit your taste.
