  1. Grind all the ingredients together except got the mutton to a smooth paste ,adding little water . Taste and adjust . The salt and hotness should be more than required only then will it get into the meat and dry out well.
  2. Wash the meat , drain and pay dry .( my grand ma never used to wash the meat , my mom also does the same but I just can't do that ) apply the ground masala with the pat dried meat and mix well . String the masala mixed meat with a help of a needle and heavy twine . ( I use metallic thin wire to string , as there is no need for a needle or twine . Hassle free ) tie the stringed meat over a high place where there is good sun light (which helps the meat to dry out fast ) and beware no cats or dogs can access the meat hanging .
  3. Keep a gap of 1/2 inch between each piece of meat . Dry it in the sun for at least one week or more till the meat is dried out really well and sounds like a stone dropped when dropped in your kitchen counter .
  4. This dried meat can be stored in air tight containers for a year or more . When ever required take 8 pieces of meat ( serves 3-4 people ) and hammer ( i use a real hammer , place the dried meat over the ammi kal (sil patta ) and hammer ) it well till it gets to a thin spread out meat piece .sherd the hammered meat piece into thin shreds .
  5. Heat coconut oil or ghee and fry the dried shredded meat for 1 1/2 minutes until it cooks through and gets crispy . Drain and serve when cooled a little as the crispness is felt only when cooled down .

Notes -

  1. Takes 4 to 6 days to dry the meat and 8 minutes to fry.
  2. Store it in air tight containers . An ideal dish ,best served with boiled white rice for lunch or with kanji .
