The dish, Mutton Achari is a  hot and tangy mutton cuisine from the Awadh region of Uttar Pradesh, India....Some days back, when i was just changing the channels in TV, I saw  Mutton Achari cooked by one participant in a cookery show called Master Chef - I..after seeing, i just made my mind to cook this..and it really turned out as a very tasty and yummy recipe..I just made lil verifications with the chilli part as me and my hubby cdnt eat too much chillies...any ways its enough talking now...
