Mutton Bihari style

All states in our country has mutton cooked in different styles and each is unique in every way. I plan to cook all styles but it’s never easy because the country is so big that probably it’s going to take a lifetime for me to just finish cooking all states styles of mutton 😄…. a joke. This particular one is of great interest to me as I have a deep root connection with state of Bihar both from my parents side. So here follows the recipe 😊
