How to Make Mutton Uppu Kandam

  • Grind all the ingredients together, except the mutton, to a smooth paste, adding a 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.
  • Wash the meat, drain and pay dry.
  • Apply the ground masala to meat and mix well.
  • String the masala mixed meat with the help of a needle and heavy twine.
  • Tie the stringed meat over a high place where there is good sunlight (which helps the meat to dry out fast ).
  • 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.
  • This dried meat can be stored in airtight containers for a year or more.
  • Whenever required, take pieces of meat and pound it well till it forms a thin spread out piece.
  • Shred the hammered meat piece into thin shreds.
  • Heat coconut oil or ghee and fry the dried shredded meat for 1.5 minutes until it cooks through and gets crispy.
  • Drain and serve when cooled a little as the crispness is felt only when cooled down.
