Mutton Boti Masala

So 2 weeks ago my shelves in my crockery cupboard came crashing down taking all my latest props with it. Beautiful hand picked plates and bowls all gone. I had collected them since the last 3 years for my food photography to upload in my blog. I was devastated.

With my bday coming up, my friend Mani sent me an early surprise – this beautiful white plate similar to the one I lost. I told her that I have stopped updating the blog so wont be buying anymore crockery. She insisted that I should and not let a dream of mine go.

My son loves mutton, he is not a foodie and eats only to survive. But if u ask him what should I make, he always picks mutton. Once overheard him chatting once with a friend, ‘ tomorrow there will be mutton made in the house’ His friend asked why so he said ‘Kal Eid hai na’ I burst out laughing as it’s not a festival we celebrate.

Recently saw a video on FB with this recipe and it looked absolutely inviting. So made this rich delicious Mutton Boti Masala for dinner. ( I know boti means boneless but am a sucker for Nalli ??)
