Ply try these tips too:
1- Marinate the mutton with masalas, salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and ginger garlic paste for half an four.

2- Add sliced tomatoes (strictly red & desi) and yoghurt after frying the mutton, it makes the mutton more tasty after cooking.
3- Add a cup of fresh methi leaves.
4- Prefer sem phalli over beans.

Sister, I found your recipes very much similar to my ammi's recipes.
Can you mention approximate quantity of salt in future posts? Since, quantity of salt affects a lot on taste, it will help a lot for freshers like me.
