Papaya works as a tendering agent and it increases the flavor of the stew.
Kebab chini aka allspice is completely optional but gives an amazing flavor to the mutton stew.
Adjust chili and pepper based on your need.
Instead of butter, you can use refined oil.
You can adjust the lemon juice based on your need.
Instead of mutton, you can use lamb as well.
Though I skip, however, you can add tomato.
