how to cook mutton paya /mutton paye

  • payas are easy to clean ,we usually get the cleaned ones or you can ask your butcher to clean them for you.
  • You can burn the hair if any by holding the paya on the flame alternatively you can apply atta/whole wheat flour and rub it well ,the hair comes out easily then wash them nicely before boiling.
  • Its better to cook the paya first in the pressure cooker the time may vary though ,it takes about 25 to 35minutes depending on paya .
