Mutton Kola Urundai - Madurai Kumar Mess Special

I Had heard a lot about Kola Urundai but didn't have any chance to taste it.. Last month we went to Madurai, we had our lunch at kumar mess- a famous non vegetarian hotel in madurai which serves many exotic chettinad vareties...

By compulsion of the one who served, i happened to taste the kola urundai... To my suprise i has 3 pieces and my son was suprised to see me eating mutton kola urundai.. The ball didn't have a drop of oil in it.. Though it was deep fries..Just felt love with the kumar mess kola urundai... Icome home but still cannot forget the taste..

My hubby is the big fan of mutton recipes.. So i kept browsing many blogs, but finally followed Solai Achi's recipe and made this balls.. What a suprise!!!! Tasted similar to that of the ones which had tasted at the kumar mess.. It was super hit and my whole family members enjoyed it well.. So do try it and you will then say kola urundais are much easier to make..

Just stick on the ingredients.. Don't do any changes.. Do as i did.. and strictly followed her blog recipe...So i hope that you must try this recipe and let me know how it's turns out from you...
