Nihari Curry...

I always use to make nihari using Shan Masala this time i tried to make it from scratch and it turned out to be a good recipe.

* Lamb 750 gms
* Oil/Ghee 1.5 cups
* Wheat flour 3-4 tbsp
* Green masala 1.5 tbsp
* Whole garam masala (incl powder nutmeg) 2 tbsp
* Red chilli powder 1 tsp
* Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
* Salt
* Onion 1 medium

Heat oil, add whole garam masala and fry meat for 10 minutes with green paste.
Add powder masala and fry for 2 minutes.
Add 8-10 glass of water and let it cook for 4-5 hours on low-medium heat.
Mix flour in a cup of water and add it slowly to the nihari. Keep stirring.
Cook on high heat for 10-15 minutes.
Now fry thinly sliced onions and add them to the nihari along with the remaining oil.
Cook for further 5 minutes.
Serve hot, garnished with grated ginger, lemon and chopped green chillies.

My DH really loves nihari and because of him, I do too now, lol! I always use Shan or National masala as well. Thanks for a homemade recipe, but didn't you add crushed fennel seeds (saunf)? Because I thought that is the "secret" special ingrediant in nihari.. ;) Looks delicious! :)

thanks gaijin

ahannnnnnn... will add that when i try it next time... thanks for sharing the secret :-)

veeeeeeeeeeeeeery nice
thanks girl

hmm, looks delicious - will certainly try it. I have bought some SHan masala but my daughter cannot handle Shan spice level :-)
Looking forward to trying your version with control over the chilly.

thanks Aisha

Thanks SJ
