Sara I see that you do not grind the first batch of onions.
Mutton chops look very tempting. Am wondering that we did grind the onions, the sauce/gravy might be smoother? Have you tried it?

My hubby is a die hard fan of mutton recipes.. the pic looks absolutely drool worthy. I too make it the same way, except I dont add the ground masala as you have mentioned. It must have been really exotic I guess..
