Pepper Mutton Roast


Have we ever wondered why we are upset about life’s turns? I guess this slide says it all…



Sharing with you all today, yet another delicious mutton preparation. We all love mutton at home, but do not buy or cook it that frequently as chicken is. Whenever, I get mutton in hand, I always try to experiment with different flavors and recipes. I guess one would agree that there is no substitute to the taste that black pepper lends to mutton – it is like a perfect marriage!!! Load of pepper in mutton just elevates the taste of mutton somehow. That reminds me that I am supposed to get some mutton head and learn to cook from umma as to how to make soup of it. There was a time when umma used to make it once in a while, now I guess it’s been ages since I have had it!!! So while I leave all of you with this awesome peppery mutton roast, that we had with some parathas (not home cooked, the frozen ones! Yeah, I went a bit lazy there… hehe…), let me think out how I get umma to make the soup for me… πŸ˜‰


If you like a peppery mutton curry, then here is the recipe for you as well!
