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.
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 my mom’s recipe. This is an excellent tasting dish and an easy way to make mouth watering lamb.

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!
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.
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!
The stew is a must have on my in-laws side of the family for feasts or special occasions. It does have many steps but it is the only dish you need to cook as it is an entire meal in a bowl.
They are delicious patties that make a great appetizer. Although, traditionally made with beef they can be made with any kind of minced meat like chicken or lamb. Can be served plain with some hot tomato sauce or put in on a bun to make a good sandwich.
This quick and easy soup is a great first course for a dinner party. Use thinly sliced pork and the freshest ginger.

The wonderful flavours of the Mediterranean region inspired me to make this yummy dish. You may use mutton if you can't find lamb.
