1/2 cup curd -- beaten

1/2 teaspoon chile powder

1/4 teaspoon gulaab ki pankhrhi -- (rose petal powder)

Preparation / Directions:

Clean and remove the blade bone of the raan and then, using a sharp knife, loosen the meat around the thigh bone (without exposing the bone) and then make deep slits along the length. Wash and pat dry. To marinate: Forcefully rub - as in massage - the lamb leg, inside and out, with chile powder. Repeat the process with salt, followed by raw papaya paste, garlic paste, and finally ginger paste. (Each of these ingredients should be rubbed separately into it and not as a mixture). Reserve for one-and-a-half hours. To prepare the cashew nut paste: Roast each of the ingredients separately on a medium hot tawa. Grind with about 300 ml water to a smooth paste. Heat ghee in a large flat pan and season with cardamoms, black cardamom, clove, cinnamon and bay leaf. Stir over medium heat until the green cardamoms change color. Add the ginger paste and garlic paste and stir over medium heat until the moisture evaporates. Lower the heat, add the cashew nut paste and stir-fry until the ghee floats on top (sprinkle small quantities of stock to prevent sticking). Then add chile powder and stir for a few seconds. Remove the pan from heat. Stir in the curd. Return the pan to heat and add fried onions. Stir-fry until the ghee floats on top. Increase the heat and add the marinated raan. Fry the meat well. Add the remaining stock and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until done. Remove the leg and pass the gravy through a fine mesh sieve into a separate saucepan. Return the gravy to heat, add the leg, mint leaves, coriander leaves and salt. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat, add patthar phool powder and rose petal powder. Stir well. Add saffron, stir and simmer until the gravy is of ketchup consistency. Check the seasoning Arrange the leg in a serving plate and pour the gravy over. Serve with sautéed potatoes.
