About Yakhni Bhen.. My Way.(Kashmiri Lotus Root and Yogurt Gravy)... Recipe

This is my take on the most popular Kashmiri Nadur Yakhni. I had made two changes to this gravy, one the mutton pieces and the other being the red chilli powder, hence i named it my way. Apart from that it remains the authentic recipe to the last. These liberties taken by me does not make it any less attractive or aromatic. This authentic recipe can be conveniently adapted to suit one's palate. As it is, lotus stem is considered as a meat for the vegetarians and being a Hyderabadi, i couldn't resist adding mutton bone-in to it. Trust me folks, it tastes just out of this World. Do check it out people. I bet you will love it.

Ingredients to make Yakhni Bhen.. My Way.(Kashmiri Lotus Root and Yogurt Gravy)...

  • Lotus root/stem 1 kg
  • curd 250gm
  • Mutton bone in 1/2 kg
  • ghee 80gm
  • Kashmiri red chilli powder 2 tsp heaped
  • salt to taste
  • bay leaves 2
  • ginger powder 2 tsp
  • cardamom powder 1 tsp
  • peppercorns 6-8
  • Onion paste from 1/2 a kg small sliced onions or pran as called in Kashmir if available.
  • mint leaves or powder 1 tbsp
  • Fine fennel powder 1 tbsp
  • cinnamon powder 1 tbsp
  • mustard oil or sunflower oil

How to make Yakhni Bhen.. My Way.(Kashmiri Lotus Root and Yogurt Gravy)...

  1. Clean the lotus stem well and cut into slant thick slices.
  2. In a pressure cooker, heat ghee and add the bay leaves and the peppercorns.
  3. Next add the onion paste which is called as pran in Kashmir. It is made by soaking the sliced onions in some salt water for 5 minutes and later squeezing out the excess water and deep frying them until golden brown.
  4. After sauteeing the onion paste for half a minute, add the beaten curd.
  5. Next add in all the powdered spices one by one.
  6. This forms the base of the gravy.
  7. Now add in the mutton pieces.
  8. Mix well and pressure cook it for 7 to 8 whistles at first.
  9. Later on, reduce the flame and add the lotus stem pieces and pressure cook for 5 minutes.
  10. This is because lotus stems take less time to cook compared to the mutton.
  11. After the pressure settles down, simmer it on low flame for the next 5 minutes.
  12. Serve hot with chapatis.

My Tip:

Kashmiri pran or shallots are little milder in taste than the onions. They can be bought online too.
