My Beautiful Food!

Mixed in a delicious array of yogurt, saffron, and exotic spices. Marinated for hours to perfection. And then slow cooked in firewood to bring out a flavourful creation that’s one of its kinds, known to the world as, Zafrani Gosht. A Mughlai culinary artifact made out of tender lamb infused in the flavours of freshly roasted whole spices and cashew nut gravy to create a delicacy that lingers in the taste buds.

A beautiful dish presented in an equally beautiful dishware. Glass. Not an ordinary one but Borosil  Pure and pristine. Enabling to see through each layer of the rich brown gravy flowing over the contrasting white bones cozily  wrapped around their succulent, melt-in-the-mouth meaty counterparts. Making way in between the creamy gravy are the tiny little pieces of whole spices. Totally submerged and their flavours well incorporated. On topmost is a layer of pure desi ghee, revealing the true royal self of the dish. And finally, a dash of décor with freshly chopped coriander leaves. Wow! To accompany it is the long-grained basmati, eagerly awaiting in the Borosil glass casserole kept next. Warmth and aroma well intact. Need I say more? Dig in!
