      Whats the difference between that and normal nihari?

      BTW, so you are now in London? Have you stocked up on Sainsbury's hummous???

      Actually the delhi nihar is the best nihari which is cooked by resturants like Javiad, Sabri and Zahid in Karachi. I am looking for that receipe. Shan masala nihari packet (others too) does not give that real taste.

      Yes I am having those delicious houmous here. And now they are in many varieties. Some days ago I was watching BBC and there was some american singer on it who was a fan of Sainbury's Houmous!

      ^ Wow, there are more people out there who think the same? LOL. The stuff must be good!

      Some days ago we had some other hummous with our lunch and husband said it's not better than sainsbury's, I remembered you and told him there is a karachi man on GS who tried to recreate the recipe but failed. He will be happy to know that you have been able to get hold of it again!

      Well, I don't know how it compares to your Delhi nihari, but I made up some nihari masala myself by copying the ingredients from the Shan packet when it ran out and added some black and green elaichi's too. It tasted REALLY good, BETTER than shan.

      Try it yourself, just copy everything from the shan packet and put it in a grinder. Quantities wise, the MAIN 2 ingredients to add (most quantity) are Saunf and Kalonji. You can get garlic powder and dried onions from the supermarket. Then add smaller amounts of the other stuff in the packet, you can leave out the ingredients that are listed as numbers. Add some black and green elaichi's to the grinder too. Lots of paprika too.

      Smell it, taste it, if its not to your liking, add some more stuff until it smells good.

      And also, someone on GS wrote earlier about bhoonaing the maida before you make a paste from it. I tried it and IT WORKS REALLY WELL.

      So you just stir the plain flour in a pan until it changes colour (gets a bit darker) then make paste when cooled.

      Mostar95,

      Check out this link below. It discusses the history of nihari and mentions the famous nihari shops you listed in your above posts. AND also contains a recipe for Nihari. After clicking the link, you'll have to scroll down to the Nihari secion.

      I've heard so much good stuff about chef zakir, I came across his nahari recipe and I tried it. And well... it kinda sucked :S

      I wouldn't underrate my cooking skills, so dunno what I did wrong. But he basically advised to simply cook the nahari goshti (it was a recipe primarily for chicken nahari) in salt, red chilli powder and to add this little cheese-cloth pouch with a tbsp or so of sonth (dried whole ginger) and saunf (aniseed). I just have this little stainless steel ball so I put the sonth n saunf in that. And well, it totally sucked :S
      Dunno what I did wrong. I had to eventually give a healthy sprinkling of shaan's nahari masala to bring out the flavor.

      Could also be cuz I don't really like chicken nahari,. but I had to do with chicken since I didn't have no veal on me..

      Well I think this is the most close recipe of nihari. As my sisters also cook this way and it comes almost 95% equal to those finest niharies of Karachi - esp Jawaid Nihari in Dastgir.

      I am going to cook it today.
