Boiled mutton

Boiled mutton is a traditional dish of ethnic people. It also has become an important part of Han people's dinner on the Eve of Chinese New Year. Apart from making dumplings, people often boil mutton around midday and share it with the whole families in the evening. Han people add spring onions to reduce the scent of mutton, and turnip to help the digestion.
