Mutton Sukka Recipe | Mutton Chukka Varuval | Spicy Mutton Masala Fry Recipe

 Mutton Chukka Varuval Recipe
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas celebration and enjoying your holidays. We too had a good one. V is off this week, so its going to be a busy week, elaborate cooking, shopping and outing. Now coming to the recipe, Mutton Chukka Varuval/Mutton Fry, after a very long time I cooked mutton few weeks back. This is again my mom's recipe, very simple and easy to cook mutton recipe. Here I used little coconut paste for the varuval but you can skip coconut if you don't like but I recommend adding coconut paste, sure it give rich flavor and unique taste to the fry. Mom makes similar fry with chicken also.  Mutton Chukka is a spicy and delicious side dish that goes well with Biryani, plain rice and rasam and even with soft dosa. We had it with Chicken Biryani and raita. It was a filling and delicious weekend meal.
