    This is some kind of a unique and exotic recipe for me. I can’t imagine mixing rice with chicken. I’ve never eaten that before but would definitely take the challenge to try it. I just hope it tastes good. You know I’m a little bit picky when it comes to food.

  23. Lovely mutton dish...nice color

  24. Sooooo delicious mutton..thanks for Cooke

  25. Why not do steps 3-10 in cooker? My idiotic mind fails to understand.

    1. Yes, the whole process can be done in cooker itself. For me, the pan is better to toss the mutton with all the masala well in it.
