Brain Masala (maghaz)

Brain Masala recipe (noted from Chef Zakir's program)


Brain Masala
Brain (beef 1 or lamb 2)
Tomatoes 2 (medium, peeled and chopped)
Onion 1 (chopped)
Green chilies 3
Ginger, garlic paste 1 tbsp
Fresh coriander
All spices 1/2 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Red chilli 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 1/4 cup


Place washed brain in a sauce pan with enough water to barely cover the brain, add a spoon of turmeric, bring to boil, reduce heat for 2 minutes.
Remove brain from water, drain on absorbent paper.
Heat oil in a pan, fry ginger-garlic paste and chopped onions in it after 2 minutes add chopped tomatoes and keep frying for 3 - 5 minutes.
Add spices, 1 cup of water, bring to boil, simmer for two minutes, add brain in it.
Do no stir continuously, just cook it till oil separates from the masala.
Add fresh coriander, thin slices of ginger and chopped green chilies and serve with naan.

Tip: Add little ginger, garlic paste when you put turmeric while boiling the brain., this way you can get rid of bad smell coming out of brain.
