But last week, when we went to Mustafa, bought the mutton in a little quantity and tried this. It really came out good. Do try and let me know how this fry came for you...

Mutton fry

Tasty and delicious mutton pepper fry is ready... 

1. Here you can add onion and tomato before adding mutton pieces also. No harm in it, Since we are going to pressure cook all. 
2. The 6 whistles took around 14 min for me. It might vary based on the cooker and the quality of mutton. if If the mutton is not cooked, add some more water and pressure cook it again for another 7 to 8 min. 
3. Take care while adding salt as the mutton already contsins salt. 
4. Adding butter is optional, but I feel it enhances the taste. Salted or unsalted butter can used. While using salted butter again take care of the salt amount while adding. 
5. I used the mutton cooked water for preparing soup. But my mom used to say if we leave that water in it, the mutton would be more tasty.

Cucumber Tomato Salad | Easy Salad Recipes | Weight Loss Recipes | Diet Recipes

Last Saturday, I was not in a mood to cook. Still need to cook for my mom and kids. So prepared this Mushroom pulao which i would be posting soon. But I wanted to have some light food and I searched my fridge for the veggies. I found the baby cucumbers lying in the corner. First thought of doing the cucumber lassi, but I am short of yogurt. So finally ended up preparing this Cucumber Tomato Salad. So my lunch was just the salad and 2 slices of bread. The remaining salad I kept in fridge for the night and finished it.

shrimp prawn curry

Malabar Prawn Curry is my kids favorite curry. It tastes great with steamed rice or with idlis or Aappam or even with chappathi or roti. It can be made as a spicy one or with mild spiciness. I made with less spicy as I need to feed my daughter. I took the recipe from here. If you want to look for some tangy and spicy prawn dish you can have a look on prawn thokku or prawn gravy. For spicy dry version prawn dishes look on to Andhra style prawn fry or chemmeen roast. Let's check on Malabar Prawn Curry and it's preparation.
