This is my mom’s recipe. This is an excellent tasting dish and an easy way to make mouth watering lamb.
: This is very delectable non vegetarian dish. Royal cooks used to make for kings and princes when they were out hunting.
This 'Safed Gosht' is my father-in-law’s recipe. He loves strong flavours and cooks this curry with lots of garam masala and garlic. This year, I'll cook it for him and Papa. Happy Father's Day!
I first tried this curry in a restaurant in Bangalore. I loved it so much that I asked all my friends if they knew anyone from Mangalore who could share the recipe with me. Finally, one of my friends came through. Below is an adaptation of her mother’s recipe. If you like peppery curries and tamarind, you are sure going to love this style of curry. Serve with steamed plain rice or with chapati.
This is a delicious recipe that I grew up on - a traditional Greek way to prepare lamb. Lamb and onion are browned in olive oil, then cooked with fresh green beans in a tomato sauce, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. I've added my own touch with some fresh mint.
This finger licking, authentic, fragrant, flavourful curry is made with tender pieces of lamb. You may use mutton also if its more easily available.
This is a traditional haggis straight out of Scotland.
Mutton marinated in herbs with lime and chillies. I like tender, boneless lamb meat for this dish. This is a traditional North African dish and is best served with couscous.
While teaching English in Asia the past several years, I've been lucky to exchange some delicious and authentic recipes with local people. This Vietnamese Sandwich, or Banh Mi, is brilliant and it is a nice break from common sandwiches. Use garlic chilli sauce but Indonesian sambal or Korean chilli paste can also be substituted. This is an authentic recipe of French influenced Vietnamese cuisine.
Vindaloo is a dish that comes from Goa. My friend Allan is a Goan and he told me the origin of the word 'Vindaloo' comes from a mix of the Portuguese words for wine (vinho) and garlic (alho) - hence vindaloo. So there's no 'aloo' or potato in this recipe anywhere. But plenty of vinegar and garlic. Use a fatty part of the pork for the best results. Port fat rules in this recipe!
What makes this curry special is the “bhuna” part. This consists of pan frying the meat with spices. The meat cooks in its own juices, which is what gives the deep flavour. It is a bit time consuming, but the end result is delicious.
This is one of our family favourite,we like to eat it with lots of dhaniya (corriander leaves) and peas in it.
This non-vegetarian dish is the star of the party. You can either use minced mutton or minced beef. Great with pulao, parathas or pooris.
I have fond memories of eating these kababs at my dear friend’s house in Hyderabad. Whenever I went to her house, I always hoped her grandma had these kababs on the menu for the day. I particularly love the complex taste and soft texture of the cooked dal and meat together.
A non-vegetarian's delight, a bowl of this soup will keep you warm and cozy during the harsh winter days of Rajasthan.
We tried this dish at a restaurant and fell in love with it. One of my husband's favourite appetizers, I make it as many times as I can.
This is my sister's recipe and she makes it whenever we visit her. Our kids love this dish and I hope you do too!
My friend Manesh Singh, who is a professional chef, shared this goat curry recipe with me. Like all of Manesh bhaiya's dishes, this one is also richly flavourful and finger licking good!
This dish is made from baby goat meat, and I love it as much in summer as in winter. This is because it is a soothing dish with an almost stew like consistency while maintaining some spiciness in the flavor. It is a perfect comfort food that mom made for us when either we were sick and had lost appetite or feeling low due to a bad weather or something. It goes well with rice or chapatti.
Meat Loaf is a good accompaniment for a party. It can be eaten hot or cold. It is also used to make tasty sandwiches or as stuffing for canopy cups.
