Instant Pot Mutton Biryani

Instant Pot Mutton Biryani

An instant pot biryani has been pending for long on my ‘To Cook’ list. After years of cooking biryani the prolonged, conventional way – cook the meat and rice separately, then layer the rice on the meat. So I couldn’t get my head around making […]

Keema Karela

Keema Karela

Like I’ve said before, I enjoy dishes that combine meat with vegetables. Karela (bitter gourd) is a vegetable with ‘mixed feelings’. You’d detest it if you have it by itself, and you’d enjoy if you combine it with different ingredients and spices that compliments its […]

Gosht Lababdar / Mutton Lababdar

Gosht Lababdar / Mutton Lababdar

I don’t if I’ve had this dish anywhere but I testify that Mutton Lababdar lives up to its name. Lababdar (apparently) means “a strong desire to indulge”. I admit that the recipe is extensive and calls for every possible ingredient in the kitchen but cook […]

Baghara Baingan – known as Baingan ka Khatta as well – is a famous dish in Hyderabad and Bangalore, especially paired with Mutton Biryani , Dum Pukht Biryani or Vegetable Biryani and is served at weddings. Another similar accompaniment is Mirchi Ka Salan. I’ve tried to prepare Baghara […]

Chicken Changezi

Chicken Changezi

Yes, the name Chicken/Murgh Changezi might remind you of the mighty emperor Genghis Khan, popularly known as Changez Khan in the Indian sub-continent (It did to me). There may not be any connection but it would be interesting how Chicken Changezi got its name. Maybe […]

Delhi Mutton Korma

Delhi Mutton Korma

Mutton korma recipe is one of the finest recipes from the Mughlai cuisine. The dish is rich and aromatic prepared with exotic ingredients. The authentic way to prepare similar meat dishes is to use as little water as possible and cook on low heat. It […]

Chutney Gosht

Chutney Gosht

It was an evening with little mood to cook but no mood to eat the usual or even a take-out. I decided to attempt Chutney Gosht since it sounded like a good diversion from the usual mutton curries, although not really out-of-the-box. Herbs give it […]
