Stir Fried Vegetarian Mutton With Curry Leaves

There are some peculiar and funny people in this world. I don't know about you, but I have meet the biggest pot of them. These people have millions of theories to healthiness, one of it is the vegetarian theory (Vegetarian Mutton Peratal, Vegetarian Mutton Varuval & Vegetarian Mutton Curry & Vegetarian Mutton Rendang). They believe that being a vegetarian will secure a place in heaven, whereas non-vegetarians like me will burn in hell, also that vegetarianism is a reflection of holiness and religiousness. Oh, oh, really? Honestly, you know what? Those who preach such a theory seem leaving to animal planet after world faster than the rest. I have concluded. For me, it is really simple. I don't fall for the healthy crab, I on the other hand eat what I like, live as I like and I am happy. That's it. No disputes, neither will I allow anyone to dispute my life. My life my way. The rest can shut-up.

Now, since I have sensitively touch and hit hard on vegetarianism, logically it should rain and rain vegetarian dishes (Eggplant In Spicy Sauce, Fried Mushroom Rolls, Winter Melon Wolfberry Soup, Shanghai Noodles & Spinach Tomato Soup), but with curry leaves mentioned for this Stir Fried Vegetarian Mutton, I am linking two more interesting non-vegetarian dishes (Curry Leaves Baked Chicken & Curry Leaves Grilled Salmon). No issues for vegetarians. Aplenty mock meat available in every corner. Now, over to the recipe of the day, vegetarian mutton stir fried alongside dried chillies, spices and a good heap of curry leaves. Yum!

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 mutton rolls.
Deep fry in batches, 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 tiny bit of of salt.
Stir fry until rolls becomes glossy and sunshiny.
Dish out/remove from heat.
