— SUITABLE FOR PURE VEGETARIAN FOOD —
dilli nihari masala is a spice blend that is used for slow cooking meat to create a dish called Nihari Gosht, a spicy mutton specialty, that originated from the streets of Delhi, and has found its place in 5-star menus. The meat selected should be fleshy and with lots of marrow bones. And besides the ingredients, Nihari Gosht also requires a special preparation method. In the first 5 minutes or so, the ingredients are cooked on high heat and after that on very low heat for a long time till the meat softens.

1 kg Mutton | fleshy pieces with lots of marrow bones
Prepare a cooking paste using:
20g Garlic (chopped fine)
150g Onion (chopped fine)
1 Tbs Ginger-Garlic paste
4 tsp dilli nihari masala
¼ cup Rose Water
Fry the garlic and onion separately, and put in wet grinder with all the excess oil, add the dilli nihari masala, the ginger-garlic paste and the rose water. Grind to paste. Keep aside.
In ¼ cup of warm water, soak ½ tsp saffron, ¼ tsp nutmeg powder and ¼ tsp cinnamon powder. Keep aside.
Heat 2 Tbs oil in a heavy bottom pan and add 3 tej patta, 4 black cardamom and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the mutton and sauté till the flesh becomes firm. Add salt (to taste) and 1 tsp turmeric powder and mix well. Add ¼ cup water, cook covered till it starts to boil. Add 4 Tbs curd (whisked), mix well and cook for 1 minute. Add the cooking paste—from Step1—and the saffron mixture—from Step2. Cook covered for 3 minutes on high heat. Remove heat, if available, add 4 drops of kewda water, and stir the contents well. Leave aside for 10 minutes, covered.
Restart the heat to the lowest, cover the pan with a heavy lid—or place some weight on it. Cook for about 45 minutes, or till the meat is soft.
