Spicy Mutton fry is a perfect side dish to serve with Rasam rice when you are down with cold during the winter season. Apart from Rasam rice, this fry goes well with plain rice and also, with sambhar rice. Frying chilies in an oil before adding the cooked mutton masala enhance the spiciness in the fry and in addition gives a delicious taste. The freshly ground pepper gives an extra punch to the dish. If you are a spicy food lover, then this mutton recipe is a must try dish.
After started getting fresh meat and seafood from FishandMeat, my frequency of traveling to market has reduced. Ordering the product is also quite easy either I have to order using their App or just through whatsapp. Recently received an IQF done mutton pieces from FishandMeat and the taste was similar to the fresh ones. IQF (Individual Quick Freezing ) is one of the freezing method followed in the food industry. Apart from meat, any smaller pieces of food items like berries, small fish, poultry, prawns and diced vegetables can be stored by this method. This method helps the product to retains its shape, color, taste, and smell.
The product has to be removed from the freezer only before starting the cooking process. Just drop the packet in a big bowl of water for about 20 minutes. This helps the meat to de-freeze and later, it can be used for cooking.
The meat looked fresh and tender as shown in the pic below after 20 minutes.
I have to thank FishandMeat for introducing such a technique which indeed helped me to learn more about this freezing method. I prepared a spicy fry out of this meat which turned out really yummy and here comes the recipe...
