Mutton Pepper Fry (Nagarjuna style)

Updated: Aug 7, 2021

During my spinster days when I was working in Bangalore, some of the restaurants I'd frequent were Andhra style restaurants. I absolutely loved them; the three course meals, dum biryanis, a wide ranging selection of non-vegetarian sides, and all at reasonable prices. My favorite chain was Nagarjuna and the one dish I would order every time I went was their mutton pepper fry- just thinking about it now makes my mouth water! Over the years and many trials later I've managed to recreate it to the best of my ability; succulent pieces of mutton in a spicy, peppery and lemony gravy that goes well with rice and bread alike.
