Vegetarian Mutton Peratal

The demand for vegetarian food? I really don't know what to say. The blind leading the blind, or the world is spinning upside down, inside out (Yam Basket Vegetarian)? I really don't know why such a major hype of late, and if you are a vegetarian amongst the Indians, millions of ups for you. Somehow this thing to vegetarianism amongst Indians. As if you are the holiest grain or for reasons only Indians know best. What about me? I like to eat and live according to my wish, and I really don't care what others think about me. Like I care? Nothing is assured or guaranteed anyway. Whether vegetarians kick their buckets earlier or myself. What's with Vegetarian Mutton Peratal then? Simply. Me wanting to test out and me wanting to test my cooking skills. I did very well fine. A simple style to cooking which is applicable to real mutton as well (Mutton Parathal) and of course, where are you vegetarians?

200g vegetarian mutton. 
3 small potatoes (sliced into small pieces)
1/2 tbsp dried chilli powder
3-4 dried red chillies (broken)
1 onion (sliced)
5 pips garlic (chopped)
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 sprigs coriander leaves (sliced)
Oil as needed
Salt for taste

Mix potatoes with a pinch of salt.
Fry in oil, remove and keep aside.
Leave about 2 tbsp oil in the same wok.
Saute onion, dried chillies and garlic.
Add chilli powder, coconut milk and salt.
Stir and let it heat through.
Put in mutton pieces and fried potatoes.
Stir and cook.
Off the heat and combine in coriander leaves.
