METHOD

For lamb shoulder
  • 1. Ask your butcher to make some slits with knife along with the bone of lamb shoulder so that the marination can go right inside the meat.
  • 2. Marinate the lamb shoulder with rest of the marination. Now burn charcoal on gas till it gets red in colour and then smoke the lamb shoulder with burned charcoal by keeping it in small bowl with butter and cloves. Cover it with sliver foil so smoke will retain in the bowl to have taste of charcoal in it
  • 3. Place a rack in middle of oven; preheat to 170 degree. Transfer lamb shoulder to a roasting pan and pour in 3 cups water. Cover tightly with foil and cook, turning lamb over and rotating pan halfway through, until meat is almost falling off the bone, 3–3½ hours. Remove lamb from oven and turn up heat to broil (or to highest heat if you have a drawer-style broiler). Discard foil, transfer lamb to a cutting board, and pour off liquid in pan. Return lamb to pan; roast, uncovered, until nicely browned, about 5 minutes. Serve this with mint flavour duck fat roast potatoes.

For mint chutney

  • 1. Blitz all the ingredients in blender to make a paste and then in bowl just mix with Greek yoghurt with whisk and check the seasoning. Serve this with tandoori lamb shoulder .

Laal Maas


“Laal Maas” Literally translated it means “Red Meat”. It is characterized by its bold red colour and a spicy flavour. Laal Maas is an authentic Rajasthani dish which accentuates the exquisite aroma and flavours of mutton. It is a mutton curry prepared in a sauce of yoghurt and hot spices such as red Mathania chillies. This dish typically is very hot and rich in garlic, the gravy may be thick or liquid and is eaten with chapatis made out of wheat (usually eaten in summers) or bajra (a millet grown in Rajasthan and eaten in the winter months).But in this recipe I have used Kashmiri chillies which can be used to replace the Mathania variety in the sense that they lend a lovely colour, mild heat and also add depth to you curry. Smoking of Laal Maas with burn charcoal and cloves gives this curry so much flavour which is unmatchable.”

Healthy Protein Dosa Quinoa & Oats


Healthy Dosa made from Multi Grain Quinoa & Oats which are both high in Protein. Quinoa, pronounced ‘keen-wa’ is a great wheat-free alternative to starchy grains. In this receipe I have used T two types of quinoa red and creamy white, both types which are slightly bitter. And on the other hand, oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They're a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants. They also contain more protein and fat than most grains.
