About Lemony Rajma Mutton Masala Recipe

For all the Rajma lovers, How about pairing it with Mutton for a non-veg. version? I tried it for the first time and it turned out simply yummy. And to make it more aromatic, drop in some kaffir lime leaves for a refreshing lemony flavour. Enjoy it with plain steamed rice, jeera rice, pulao, Kuska Biryani, naan, tandoori roti or chapati. I am sure it will go very well with appam, dosa or idiyappam too.
