Mutton chops prepared in southindian style is truly a tasty feast for anyone who is down with fever or cold. We dont prepare this dish often its only during monsoon or winter. This is a southern delicacy which can be served with just rasam rice or a veg kushka. Its not considered the healthiest diet as it is a bit on the oily side and that may be the reason we prepare it occasionally. The spicy masala when mixed with rice and eaten will truly build your taste buds and make you salivate for more...
