Checking if the mutton is cooked or not- when the mutton is well cooked it leaves the bones. So this is the first and the best way to know this.
Onion:- Fry the onion till it is golden brown. This gives a nice colour and sweet taste to the dish. If this you miss or doesn’t fry properly then the colour and taste of the dish will be affected. Never hurry in this part.
