How to make Paya Nihari or Nalli Nihari

  1. Wash lamb legs or nalli (paya) pieces. In a pressure cooker heat oil and add bay leaf, cinnamon stick & sliced onions.
  2. When it turns brown in color then add lamb legs or nalli pieces, ginger garlic paste & salt. Simmer it for few minutes.
  3. Nihari masala: roast all (six) the ingredients on tawa. Let it be cool. Then grind it into a powder. You can keep it in a air tight jar.
  4. Now add nihari masala, nutmeg and mace powder & turmeric powder and mix well. Add water and cook for five minutes.
  5. Now cover the lid and cook on a low flame till it gets done.
  6. Open the lid and check the gravy. If it is thick then add more water. Because nihari tastes good when it has slightly thin gravy.
  7. Add wheat flour liquid and stir continuously. Nihari should be sticky. The more it will be sticky the more it will taste good.
  8. Lastly garnish with some chopped fresh coriander.
  9. Enjoy it with parantha or nan.
My Tip: You can use corn flour instead of wheat flour.
