Peppery mint Mutton

It is inspired from Kashmiri dish “Mutton Roghan Josh” which is very popular across the world.The original authentic recipe from Kahmir  does not have onion,ginger ,garlic and mint leaves but I included them for an added flavour.The dish came out to be awesome.For the first time, I cooked mutton on slow flame for about one hour or so,otherwise I always use pressure cooker.The dish is so yummy that it needs to be tried once and you will make it again and again.
and by the way I was so involved in cooking and looking after guests thet I could not take stepwise recipes.Hope you all understand.Happy cooking..
