  • In a large vessel or pan, heat to hot temperature.

  • Add the lamb or mutton and cook until the colour changes. Then add the ginger paste and garlic paste. Sauté for a few minutes on medium heat.

  • Grind the fennel seeds, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, bay leaves, black peppercorns, cinnamon, green cardamom pods, black cardamom pods, and cloves into a fine powder while the lamb or mutton is cooking.

  • Salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder, and nihari masala powder are then added, and the spices are cooked for 5 minutes.

  • Once the water is added, simmer the meat for an additional 2 to 2.5 hours on low heat until it is soft.

  • The wheat flour functions as a thickening agent; if you want it thicker, add more flour. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and 100 ml of water to make a homogeneous paste.

  • The flour mixture should be added to the pan, covered, and cooked for 30 minutes at a low temperature.

  • Vegetable or Olive oil should be heated to a hot temperature in a separate pan.

  • Add the sliced onions and cook them in the oil until they are browned and caramelised.

  • Along with the chopped coriander, ginger, and finely diced chilies, add the browned onions, ginger, and lamb to the dish.
