I wish someday I could eat lamb meat but I have heard that it contains high amount of fats . But still i want to check it's taste that's why I have utter desire to eat it . I will check in the restaurants for lamb dishes and try to first dine out and if any restaurant not found, i would be enjoying it at home.

  • Qazi Saleem, Rawalpindi

I am too much fond of eating lamb meat. And I have heard a lot about restaurants at Sohrab Goth . They offer very tasty lamb food and are not very expensive too. They offer lamb boti, and roast with qahwa , it is all very delicious.

We have to use both coriander leaves and seeds as mentioned in the recipe? ok, till now I have assumed that I would use both for making these pasanday. It is very good dish , we have made goat pasanday couple of times they are very tasteful but making this with lamb for the first time.
