How to make MUTTON GHEE ROAST / MUTTON ROAST Recipe. This is a Mangalorean style recipe. As the name says the star ingredient of this MUTTON GHEE ROAST is GHEE (clarified butter). No other oil on this planet can replace the taste of ghee. There is a misconception that ghee is fattening. Certainly not! 1-3 tsp of ghee a day can increase your good cholesterol. It removes the stubborn fat. It is a brain tonic and it lubricates the joints. The health benefits are plenty.

Besides ghee, the freshly dry roasted spices give the finger-licking flavour to the dish.

I have simplified this recipe to cut down the cooking time by using my home-made All-Purpose Bafat Masala and using pressure cooker to cook the lamb within 15 minutes. Believe me, it tastes great!!! You have to give it a try to believe me.

So, why not try this easy Mutton Ghee Roast recipe and enjoy it without any guilt? I can't wait to hear from you. Please comment, like, share and SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube.
