MUTTON KHEEMA VARUVAL: SPICY, TANGY INDIA FARE
Mutton kheema varuval, also known as mutton mince fry, is a popular dish from the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is a flavorful and spicy dish made with minced meat, typically mutton, and a variety of spices and herbs.
The dish starts with preparing the meat by mincing it finely. The minced meat is then marinated with a blend of spices, which typically includes ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, and cumin powder. This marinade helps to infuse the meat with flavor and makes it more tender. The meat is then left to marinate for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
Next, the meat is cooked in a pan with some oil. The cooked meat is then sautéed with onions, tomatoes, and other spices such as curry leaves, cumin seeds, and mustard seeds. The addition of onions and tomatoes gives the dish a nice tangy and sweet flavor. The sautéed mixture is then cooked until the meat is fully done and the juices run clear.
Mutton kheema varuval is typically served with steamed rice, idli, dosa or chapati, and is a popular menu item in traditional South Indian restaurants. The dish is often garnished with fresh coriander leaves, which gives it a fresh and fragrant aroma.
One of the unique features of this dish is that it can be prepared in different ways depending on the region and personal preference. In some places, the dish is prepared with a dryer consistency and is often served as a side dish or as a stuffing for parotta. In other places, it is prepared with a wetter consistency and served as a main course.
