Madurai Mutton Sukka – மதுரை மட்டன் சுக்கா

Hi all. Hope you all are doing well. I am so sick over the past days and am not yet recovered. Even I was unable to cook that’s why I was not able to post for the last 4 days. I felt like having something spicy for today. So I thought of making this mutton sukka recipe. I made it along with Rice, Moong dal curry. This mutton sukka is made in Madurai style. I got this recipe from a newspaper. I have already posted a mutton sukka which I make regularly at our home. Some times I used to make this mutton sukka recipe and this tastes like the mutton sukka from hotels. Also, it is simple to make and has a lot of flavour in it.
