Mutton Boti Chana dal Curry – Kudal Kadala Paruppu Kuzhambu

At home, We all relish any dish made with Boti. I love them a lot. After coming to muscat I have really missed it a lot. Even though it is available mostly at all supermarkets. I never went for it as the cleaning part was a difficult one for me. I have seen my mom cleaning it. But has not tried it before.

Some days back I was having a strong desire to go buy it and cook it. So we got the goat intestine from the local butcher shop. It took time for cleaning it. But it was easy to clean and requires patience. Just soak it in hot water for about 10 minutes. Remove the dirt and fat in it. Wash them well with hot water for 5- 6 times. Then cut them into small pieces and wash them again in water and keep them ready. Pressure cook them along with salt, turmeric powder and water for 6-7 whistles.

This boti chana dal curry is a combination of goat intestine and chana dal. I learnt this recipe from my mom. This combo would be quiet new to many of them. Trust me it tastes so delicious. It goes well with Rice, Roti, Idli and Dosa.
