Mughlai Paneer

Mughlai Paneer

Mughlai paneer is paneer (cottage cheese) in a white, creamy gravy rich with cashew nuts, yogurt, and cream. One would think that the dish will be bland since it doesn’t have the ‘red color’ that we associate with red chilies. But the onions and green […]

Chicken Pakoras

Chicken Pakoras

Brief: Chicken pakoras are chicken mixed with besan (gram flour), spices, and yogurt. Boneless chicken pieces are always available in my kitchen because they are easy and quick to cook, and there is a wide variety of recipes for boneless chicken. I recently prepared Dhaka […]

Paneer Masala Dhaba Style

Paneer Masala Dhaba Style

This dish is a result of nostalgia. I had my dhaba adventures during my college years. My favorites were aloo parathas with achar and onions, veg and paneer kadhai, and phulkas. Every dish at a Dhaba is AMAZING! This Dhaba Style Paneer Masala recipe is […]

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 […]

Curry Leaf Mutton Curry (Curry Patta Gosht)

Curry Leaf Mutton Curry (Curry Patta Gosht)

Curry Patta Gosht gives me the South Indian vibes. Perhaps because curry leaves are native to South India and a staple ingredient in almost every dish. You can try this recipe with chicken as well or give it a vegetarian spin with paneer. I’ve cooked […]

Methi Chicken

Methi Chicken

I love the addition of vegetables to meat dishes. There’s an endless variety – palak gosht, lauki gosht, karela keema, bhindi gosht and so on. My favorite is the all-famous Aloo Gosht curry. I imagine these were created by chicken-mutton lovers who knew that vegetables […]

Kofta Curry

Kofta Curry

Kofta curry is a rich combination of meatballs dipped in creamy, lightly spiced curry. The koftas can be made with ground chicken or lamb. There are vegetarian kofta curry recipes as well where koftas are made with paneer, lauki, or potatoes. One of the favorites […]

Darbari Mutton

Darbari Mutton

Darbari Mutton sounds royal but is, honestly, a simple to prepare. Darbari Mutton isn’t loaded with usual spices but rich ingredients like cashews and khoya/mawa. This is a slow cooker recipe but it can perfectly fit your regular cooking methods like stove top or pressure […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Biryani

Slow Cooker Chicken Biryani

Yup! I’m trying my hands on a slow cooker (crock-pot) and I am absolutely blown away. My first dish cooked in a slow cooker – Chicken Biryani! I mustered the courage to prepare a complex dish like biryani as my first experiment, not a wise […]
