Its very simple to cook namkeen meat, just apply masalas and cook with low flame . you may also use tenderiser powder to tenderise meat as early as possible. becuase some time meat is taken time to tenderise. ...Have a nice lunch.

Not eaten this meat dish or karahi whatever, however now planning it. I have read the recipe I need to make sure that can we use beef instead of mutton? or mutton is must to use in the recipe? bcz we eat beef more than mutton.

I recently ate a namkeen roast , it was served with a boiled salted sweet potato. Roast was tasteless however eating it together with sweet potato brought some taste. Does anyone know how is it eaten and was it the actual saltish roast? I ate it first time so I am not sure I ate right thing or not..
