Stir Fried Vegetarian Mutton With Curry Leaves

Some born vegetarians whereas others gave up eating meat for whatever reason it may be. We for once can't totally abstain from eating meat. But once a week on Saturdays, its vegetarian food. I usually cook at least 4 dishes. And let me tell you that its quite a thing deciding what to cook for I've run out of ideas. I mean how different can vegetarian dishes be and for an Indian meal, its the same dishes repeated over and over. For example sambar, rasam and every now and then, vegetarian mutton peratal, vegetarian mutton varuval, vegetarian mutton curry or vegetarian mutton rendang.

Here's to another dish with vegetarian mutton but another style with dried chillies, spices and curry leaves.

400g vegetarian mutton
1 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 1/2 tsp corn flour
2 dried red chillies - snipped into small sections
1 green chilli - sliced thinly
3 shallots - sliced thinly
4 garlic - sliced thinly
1/2 ginger - sliced thinly
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 sprigs curry leaves
4-5 tbsp oil
1/2 lime - extract juice
Salt for taste

Gently rub cornflour, turmeric powder and a pinch of salt (cornflour will prevent the rolls from breaking up when stir fried) over the muttons rolls.
Deep fry them in batches in heated oil, remove and keep aside.
In the same oil, saute  the rest of the ingredients for 1-2 mins (except fried rolls and lime juice).
Add fried rolls, pour lime juice and season with a pinch of salt.
Stir fry until rolls becomes glossy and sunshiny.
Dish out/remove from heat.
