Gosht Durbari (Lamb Curry slow cooked with Yoghurt, Fried Onions and Spices)

Most of my readers are still reeling over the ‘Vegemite Masala’ - a total fusion affair for many. So I decided on something more traditional today.

Kashmiri Harisa….and a Blessed Christmas to all of you.

Transcending cultural barriers through food…..a topic so close to my heart! And that is exactly what I am sharing today. No traditional Christmassy recipe; instead a traditional lamb dish from Kashmir, a breathtakingly beautiful land conflicted by petty religious and geographical differences.
