What is Mutton Chukka Varuval?
Mutton Chukka/Sukka fry is nothing but mutton cooked with spices like onions, ginger, garlic, curry leaves, pepper, coriander leaves and coconut milk, and then dry roasted.
This dish is very popular in South India, especially Madurai.
But in this recipe, I have used cooked mutton from the mutton kolambu instead of raw mutton.
This dish can be prepared with a minimal number of ingredients, without compromising the taste.
No other non-vegetarian dishes can beat the aroma and taste of mutton chukka varuval.
