Should you be planning on making your mom something special on the weekend, we have a recipe for you.

Model and photographer Prasanna Pandarinathan's late mother Nirmala Pandarinathan's Pepper Masala Mutton Chop is an impressive dish to cook for Mother's Day.

A family pleaser, it is not very complicated, tastes wonderful and pairs nicely with steamed rice and Chicken Curry or Pamban Fish Curry for an evening dinner.

Pepper Masala Mutton Chops

"I can't remember a single time when mutton chops in pepper masala came out tasting less than perfect," says Prasanna.

"Dad and my nephew Anush are testimony to that, since we wouldn't hear a peep from people until every last morsel on their plates had been devoured."

Serves: 3-4



Note: You might consider using ghee instead of oil for a more special flavour.

Pepper Masala Mutton Chops pairs well with Divya Nair's Kerala Potato Ishtu.
