- Ensure, mutton pieces are cut into the same size, this helps in cooking the cuts throughout evenly.
- Modify the number of spices as per your preferences. Some people like it heavy on spices and chillies and some don't.
- Always, sear the meat pieces on high flames for 2-3 minutes. This seals the juices inside the meat.
