Mutton Chops /Lamb Chops

Looking for a delicious and authentic mutton chops recipe? Look no further! I learned this recipe from my Mother In Law and it's been a hit in my household ever since. So, I thought it would be great to share it with you all.

To make the perfect mutton chops, it's important to choose the right cut of meat. I recommend using the shoulder portion of the lamb as it's soft, tender and produces mouth-melting chunks. Additionally, make sure to use fresh and young mutton to get the best taste.

This recipe is made in a pressure cooker which saves a lot of time. Simply place all the ingredients in the cooker and cook for 10 minutes. However, if you don't have a pressure cooker, you can also cook the mutton in a pot with enough water until soft and tender, but it will take at least 30 to 40 minutes.

If you don't have shallots or are short on time, you can skip them. Adding shallots gives this dish more flavor, but it's still delicious without them. If you prefer a spicier dish, add an additional 1/2 tsp of pepper powder at the end. Lastly, you can also cook this recipe with mutton with bones.
