  • 2 TeaspoonsCumin Seeds

  • 1 Teaspoon turmeric powder

  • 1 TeaspoonGaram Masala

  • 3-4 TablespoonsMustard Oil or Vegetable Oil

  • 1 cupFlour dough to seal the vessel for cooking

  • bunchA Coriander leaves Finely Chopped for Garnish


  • 01

    Mix all the ingredients in a Handi or Clay Pot or Non-Stick Pot shaped vessel nicely. 

  • 02

    And keep aside for half an hour to marinate. 

  • 03

    Once marinated, cover the lid and seal it with the help of flour dough properly, a technique of cooking in steam by not allowing the steam to pass. 

  • 04

    Place the vessel on low flame for almost 1 hr 30 minutes. Its a slow cooking process. The meat gets cooked in its own steam and juices on a slow fire infusing the flavours and aroma of its own herbs and spices in the meat. Nutrients are not lost in this process and thus the food is nutritious too :).. 

  • 05

    Once done, let it cool for few minutes and then cut the dough layer. 

  • 06

    Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot in same vessel. That's the beauty of this dish :)... Enjoy this delicacy with steamed rice, bread, chapattis or phulkas :)
