I like nihari and other beef & mutton recipes because they are so tasty that if you eat it once, you would not forget its taste. You would keep asking for more.

nihari is my favorite dish and rida aftab is my favorite chef so when i need to make a nihari myself why not choose the recipe given by rida. I saw many recipes at your k food website but i choose only this one because i believe her authenticity in cooking.
