Mutton Chop (Mutton Croquet)

We Bengalis love fried foods especially as evening snack. In Bengali term ‘Chop’ means croquet and not meat pieces like mutton chop, pork chop etc. Here I have used minced mutton you can use boneless mutton pieces also. Boil the pieces and then grind them using a grinder keeping the meat a little coarse so that meat can be felt while chewing. Mutton Chop goes very well with onion-cucumber salad, mustard sauce and tomato sauce and a hot cup of tea.
