Reviews & Comments

We made this recipe and it was absolutely perfect! One of the best curries we''ve ever had. The only suggestions I would make would be to reduce the salt by half (we use himalayan salt for its gentler flavour and superior mineral profile) and to substitute the yogurt with kefir. In general, we like to use kefir instead of yogurt because it has both a greater variety of beneficial bacteria strains and a greater density thereof - resulting in more tender meat and a healthier meal overall. Thank you so much for posting this. My whole family loved it!

  • Tai Syed,

What is the english name of pasanda? Please let me know. I have to suggest this recipe to my elder cousin living in America. I would like to suggest her more Pakistani foods, she asks about traditional foods of Pakistan, then I send recipes to her.

pasanday either cooked in gravy or without gravy, both styles, it looks very delicious and amazing one. I have eaten all styles of meat dishes however pasanday is the best one in all tastes. Secondly, I like beef steaks, and beef bihari boti.

  • Maheera, Sialkot

pasanday is the perfect part of the meat and it always gives the best taste whether you cook it any style. I love pasanday and different kinds of meat recipes. Secondly, I like to eat kaleji (if cooked well) and perfectly.
