Mutton Chops Kuzhambu

Mutton chops is nothing but ribs which is considered to be a flavorful part of the goat meat. Varieties of dishes can be prepared using this and click HERE to check out my old post using chops. I have used pressure cooker method in this recipe to speed up the process. Addition of pepper powder at the last stage of cooking enhances the taste and gives a spicy flavorful curry which goes yummy with hot rice, idly or dosa.

12 Mutton Chops 
2 Big Onions, Chopped 
2 Tomatoes, chopped 
1 Tbsp Ginger - garlic paste 
1 1/2 Tbsp Oil 
1 inch Cinnamon stick

2 Bay leaves
1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder 
1 Tsp Red chilli powder
1 Tsp Coriander powder
