Mutton Paya Masala

It has started getting chiller in Mumbai as winter is approaching...The season perfect to have a hot soup or some hot paya /trotters masala .We always make paya /trotters during winters. As its considered to be heaty its perfect during the season.
This paya masala is a simple spicy yummy paya masala made with some spices without using coconut.goes very well with Hard Breads/Brun Pav( kadak pav) as its popularly called in Bombay.
I had these along some Rice rotis what we call Hand breads and it was simply superb.It taste good with steamed rice too..Do give it  a try .

    The only difference I made is used less pepper corns & more red chillies. Second thing I didnt boil paya separetely, first I bunao masala , then added paya in d cooker. I cook for 35 minutes on slow fire after 2 whistles. Anyway its really yummy.
