About this Recipe

Being in a typical Maharashtrian family, Sunday was always looked upon as a Non Veg bonanza day starting from breakfast to Lunch, dinner at times was skipped due to the heavy duty meal or was closed with a simple bone soup and some freshly baked bread, brought from a near by bakery. Typically, Kohlapuri food is high on spice and is heavy gravy based. Requires quite a bit up of prep work and patience. But trust me, if you have all the ingredients at hand and have an hour of free time with you. You can surely make a lip smacking Mutton Kohlapuri at your own home!! And this one is surely for the ongoing recipe contest as well :)
