Malvani/Malwani Mutton Sukka (Dry Mutton Dish)

? As mentioned in my previous post, this year's first cooking experiment was Malvani Mutton Sukka. This is a dish from the Malwan area of the Konkan region. As the name suggests, it is a dry dish. However, you can make it a gravy by adding more water. The dish can be used as a starter as well as a side dish.
