I am so tired of recipes with bone-meat and it is honestly very difficult for me to enjoy the recipe while I'm separating the meat from bones. Which is why I love boneless chicken handi.

Do we need to make it in the same clay haandi? because I would have to go to market to buy it. Otherwise I have stainless steel saucepans in which I cook all other foods. ok, i think i should first try in my own steel saucepan.

We keep looking for delicious Pakistani recipes even after moving to Oman. Here we can find only some of the limited foods in restaurants such as biryani and nihari and that are still limited to very few restaurants. To maintain the food desires fulfilled, we have to look for recipes from Pakistan.
