Mutton Chukka Gravy | Spicy Mutton Pepper Gravy

Mutton Chukka Gravy
Mutton chukka gravy is a semi thick gravy made with pepper powder. Addition of ghee at the end gives a nice flavor to the dish. Since we make this dish with pepper, it is very good for cold. Here we add a special chukka masala paste made with coriander powder, cumin, cinnamon and fennel seeds. I have used readymade powder for the paste. You can also use paste made with whole coriander seeds.
