Salli Boti

I was planning to prepare this from the day i have seen the snap of the dish.It is basically Parsi dish.Salli means crispy potatoes and Boti means mutton.Original recipe contains jaggery(1tsp) but i removed this while making as my family don't like anything sweet when it comes to mutton or chicken.It was really tasty and easy to make dish !

2tbsp Oil
1tbps Ghee
