Fried Goat or Lamb Chops from the Cookbook Vividh Vani

By 2 comments

Anyone know what the parsi Chap tastes like? My mom used to make it with a special masala with ground onions, ginger, garlic, coriander leaves etc. Maybe it was the love in her hands or maybe it was this recipe, I have used this many times in my cooking to make foods like Chicken Farcha, Chops and Cutlets.

Here it the translated recipe from the Vividh Vani
