Frequently Asked Questions
Why does the mutton turn chewy even after marinating it?
If your mutton isn’t cooked at the right temperature for enough time it tends to become hard and chewy. To avoid this, slow cook the mutton on low flame for about 3 hours (if you have enough time) or use a meat tenderiser like papaya, buttermilk, salt and pepper.
Which portion of mutton is tender? Mutton legs and loin chops are some of the tender portions and are also rich in flavour.
