Nowaday, i see many people are making lamb nihari at home because of its taste. Many beef & mutton recipes that first were only available at restaurants are now being prepared at homes.

I like lamb meat but only if it is cooked in balanced manner. What I mean from balanced manner is that it must be handled to remove its fats while cooking it, using appropriate spices to make it tasteful enough , finally what I mean is to cook it in a way that it doesn't feel strange to eat it. Nihari with lamb is also a good option.
