Mutton Salna

Mutton Salna is a tasty, finger licking side dish for roti, parotta or biryani. I made a simple and easy version of salna and it is very tasty! You can have this with dosa too. Usually the salna is a little watery, but I made this slightly thick in consistency as we were having this as a side dish for roti. Mostly salna is made with bony pieces of mutton as that tastes the best! You can make the same with chicken as well.

Mutton Salna

1. Adjust the spice level to your taste. I added more than 1 tsp of red chilli powder.
2. Adjust water as per your requirement. If you want watery salna, add 1 cup of water. I used only 1/2 cup of salna as I wanted a thick salna.
3. Try to use mutton pieces with bones for a tasty salna.

Until next time,
