My husband and I dine at Indian/Pakistani restaurants frequently. I enjoy the cuisine, but my husband is a fanatic. I finally made this recipe after adding it to my recipe box almost a year ago. It was so easy to prepare...I've avoided making this food at home because most recipes I've seen are very complicated. I got all the spices needed and a large package af naan at an Indian grocery for only $8.00, much cheaper than a regular supermarket, IF you can even find all of them there. The only change I made was that I added flour and water right before serving to improve the consistency because the sauce was very thin. I also simmered it over medium to medium-low heat rather than low, because it just didn't seem to be cooking. I served it over a bed of steamed basmati rice. It turned out wonderful...very authentic and unbelievably easy. My husband couldn't stop raving, and he wants me to make it often. Superb!
I use 2 large onions and after frying them whizz them in the blender with a little water. This helps to thicken the gravy.
most delicious! I would just tell you that you can easily cut way back on the amount of oil suggested and it comes out great. Would not change another thing! thanks for the great Pakistani recipe.
this is a terrific dish for a party. it's kind of exotic, but not over the top, and very easy to prepare.
I just had to review this again to let Shazia know that my husband loves this dish so much he requested it for his birthday dinner along with my naan. We're both huge fans of Middle Easter cuisine and this is a wonderful dish. For the previous reviewer I'd like to offer up a bit of advice as I've made this dish several times myself - it sounds as if you cooked the meat too long. I find that sometimes, depending upon the cut of meat I use, it takes even less than 25 minutes to cook fully. I cook only until the meat is just done and it comes out beautifully every time. Thank you so much, Shazia, I hope to try more of your contributions soon!
This was a great dish. I used a more tender cut of steak, which is just what I had on hand, but the whole family enjoyed it. It is definitely worth trying, and I will be making it again. Thanks.
I made this last night for dinner and it was a hit! My Mom cooks pasanday's and her recipe was far more complicated and even she commented how much better these were!
My family loved it even my very fussy boys.
I made this with a pretty cheap cut of beef, so I sliced it extremely thinly while it was thawing. Marinated it overnight - cut back a little on the cloves, and added a lot more ginger/garlic paste. Served it over basmati rice with paratha. Very good! Thanks!
