If you are in the mood to try out something different with the mutton gravy, then do make this Soya Mutton. I made use of some soybean along with the usual spices and surprisingly it turned out spicy and yummy just the way I wanted. It will be a great party special.
This recipe is very easy, where you just have to marinate, simmer and pressure cook. Enjoy it with your usual plain steamed rice, jeera rice, plain pulao, naan, tandoori roti or just plain chapattis.
Actually I was on the lookout for a new version of a mutton curry, other than the usual stuff and I hit upon the idea of including soya bean. Hence I ground some soaked soya chunks and included in the marination. Be sure to marinate it overnight for a juicy delicacy.
I kept it very simple with just 3 easy steps that you need to follow - marinate, simmer & pressure cook and in no time you have a new creation to be devoured with any form of rice or Indian bread. Bon Appetit!!!
