The taste of the dish is typically described as rich and savory, with the flavors of the spices and the goat meat coming together to create a unique and delicious taste. The dish is often served with rice or bread, and is a popular choice among meat lovers in many parts of the world.

The exact ingredients and method for making mutton chukka can vary from region to region and from cook to cook, but there are a few key elements that are common to most recipes. The mutton is usually marinated in a mixture of spices, including turmeric, chili powder, coriander powder, and garam masala. Some recipes also call for the addition of yogurt or lemon juice to tenderize the meat and add tanginess to the dish.

The mutton is marinated for several hours or overnight, and is shallow fried in a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. The chunks of meat are cooked until they are crispy and golden brown on the outside, and tender and juicy on the inside. The finished dish is typically garnished with fresh herbs, such as cilantro or mint, and served with rice, roti, or another type of Indian bread.

Mutton chukka is known for its bold, spicy flavor and tender, succulent meat.

It is also a common street food in many parts of South India, where it is sold by vendors who prepare the dish fresh on the spot.

The exact taste of mutton chukka can vary depending on the specific recipe, but it is generally known for its rich and savory flavor, with hints of heat from chili peppers and other spices.
