Lamb Kangari

Recommended Posts


I've found this interesting and very unsettling for other current news nature that it depicts..

I have a feeling I have a taste of this dish in my mind but I don't feel right up to it now.. I am home sick I've never been to see Kashmir. But I've a strong urge to to so now.. what with the songs of fiza playing in my mind now..

I will post later about this dish if it does clarify in my imagination otherwise I will let other culinary experts make their stands on this.

Okay for you Monica I'm giving it ..

I know I'm trying to shake off someone trying to help me here (WARNIG to people of other cultures there might be a culturally differing opinion take it with salt only ;>)

Okay this is from someone who has tasted through me (just to be very clear) I don't know that other some one trying to help us..

So ther goes: This lamb preparation is similar to the taste after eating madras lamb I think or rather the Lamb I prepare at my home using the garam masala of my MIL from chennai..

I don't know its contents (can't ask my MIL she will send it all the way here to US nad not give me recipe ;) )

Okay it has this predominan flavour of smoked flavour of peppercorns roasted to perfection allmost to the point of it becoming amber red and smokes coming from its stokes and kept into your nostrils(ayurved remedy for closed nostrils of cold for children), and it goes deep to you lungs and does a warming and te warmth of this cleanses you too from inside. It is almost like a medicine but also tasted good then too.

Okay are you you thinking how will I make it then I think you will need to have something like the KAngri too for the smoking part in on coals lighting up for flavouring the smoking of the LAmb placed on it..

If KAngri is a revered part of kashmiris and some one doesn't like this use please forgive my bring it up but it is up to an individual to use it which ever way they seem agreeable to their life style and no one should really oppose their views then. I feel free oppose those who oppose for their reasons only

I know of one thing I like to say about this post above that it is initiated to clear any misconceptions of my intensions, I did not have any political thing on mind here. I've merrely stated that it is the wish of an individual to describe the dish as he wishes to and not to oppose other tradions that use the same in a revered manner different to them.

Got that

Please do not interpret this in any other fashion.

Would any of you like to comment on the flavours I've mentioned and how you develop it in one of your dishes. Any shared remedies please.. Suvir, Episure, I've not known you two other wise but seems like you are wise guys here ..

Anyone who knows of it let me know, I would like to know how to develop the deep pleasant smoked taste of smoked pepercorns into the lamb that we have described here to you.. anyhow.

edit: any of your well known implements or tools to do the work here, please add those either. :wub:

May be a good performance of incorporating of these flavours is by placing the tava or pan of the ingredients in side of a charcoal oven from time to time shifting the pieces of lamb to coat well and smoke too.

I think is that to use a patient method of stoking this piece of meat every 5 to 10 minutes, according to the temperature of the charcoals in the grill too, would greatly flvour the meat inside.

In addition to it I would like to add the rice preparation to go with it


I would also like to add mixed nuts like pistachio, almond, walnut, and raisin. Among fruits that get added to kasmiri pulao are chiefly, pineapple apples grapes.. :huh:

:hmmm::cool: Choose your favourit fruits I'd rather say or use the frozed fruits from the store bought ones stowed away in your fridge for ages :raz::smile:

Great I need to try this one here :shock::smile: YEs I have eaten it but not made it yet but it seems to me a promising recipe. :smile:

      This is one of my daughter favorite dishes, being mild and less spicy she loves this rice dish.  Its super easy to make and goes well with most Indian curries.
      Do try this out and I am sure you will be happy with the results.

      Prep Time : 5 mins
      Cook Time: 5 mins
      Serves: 2
      1 cup rice(basmati), cooked
      1/2 cup coconut, shredded or grated
      1 green chili, slit
      1 dried red chili
      1 1/2 tablespoon oil/ghee(clarified butter)
      1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
      1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
      1/2 tablespoon chana dal(split chickpeas)
      1/2 tablespoon urad dal(split black gram)
      1 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
      A pinch of hing (asafoetida)
      Few curry leaves
      Salt to taste
      1) Heat oil/ghee(clarified butter) in a pan in medium flame. I used coconut oil here because it tastes best for this dish.
      2) Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, chana dal(split chickpeas), urad dal(split black gram), green chili, dried red chili, ginger and curry leaves. Fry this for 30 seconds in medium flame. The trick is to ensure that these are fried but not burned.
      3) Add a pinch of hing(asafoetida) and mix well.
      4) Now add the cooked rice and coconut. Stir well for about 15 to 20 seconds and switch off the flame.
      5) Finally add salt into this and mix well. You could add peanuts or cashew nuts if you prefer. Goes well with most curries.

      Prawn Balchao is a very famous Goan pickle that has a sweet, spicy and tangy flavor to it. 
      For the balchao paste you will need:
      > 8-10 kashmiri red chillies
      > 4-5 Byadagi red chillies
      > 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
      > 1/2 tsk turmeric powder 
      > 1 tsp peppercorn
      > 6 garlic cloves
      > 1/2 tsp cloves
      > 1 inch cinnamon stick
      > Vinegar 
      First you will need to marinate about 250 grams of prawns in some turmeric powder and salt. After 15 minutes deep fry them in oil till them become golden n crisp. Set them aside and add tsp vinegar to them and let it sit for 1 hour. Now, make a paste of all the ingredients mentioned under the balchao paste and make sure not to add any water. In the same pan used for fryin the prawns, add in some chopped garlic and ginger. Lightly fry them and immediately add one whole chopped onion. Next, add the balchao paste amd let it cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in the prawns and cook until the gravy thickens. Finally add 1 tsp sugar and salt according to your taste. Allow it to cool. This can be stored in a glass jar. Let this mature for 1-3 weeks before its use. Make sure never to use water at any stage. This can be enjoyed with a simple lentil curry and rice.

      Goa being one of the popular cities of India is known for its local delicacies. These delicacies have been passed on from generation to generation, while some of them have continued to remain popular, some of them have lost their charm with the introduction of newer cuisines. Since the Portuguese entered Goa, they have had a strong influence on the local cuisine. A major turning point came when they introduced a variety of spices that changed their style of cooking completely. The Portuguese introduced plants like corn, pineapple,  papaya, sweet potato and cashews. One such example of a popular dish would be Pork Vindaloo. Goan food is a mix of hot and sour ingredients that make their seafood delectable. Kokum is one such ingredient which is known to be a tangy-sweet fruit. It is added in curries to render a sour taste and is often accompanied with seafood. Dried red chillies are one the most vital ingredients common among all the local delicacies that is either used in its whole form or ground into a fine paste. Since seafood is the soul of Goan food, it is preserved and relished in other forms too. Goan pickles are known to be quite famous. Prawn Balchao, a very famous prawn pickle prepared with dried red chillies is relished with a simple lentil curry and rice. Another delicacy is the Goan Para Fish made with mackerels, red chillies and goan vinegar. These are regular accompaniments with their routine meals. When talking about Goa, you cannot not mention their sausages. These mouth-watering and spicy sausages are made with pork and a variety of spices. Last but not the least, is the widely famous Goan bread, locally known as Poi. Leavened bread which is part of almost every meal and eaten with plain butter too. These ingredients make the cuisine extremely palatable and continue to make this cuisine stand out from the rest.
