Pasanday is my favorite dish and I enjoy eating it a lot. I have cooked pasanday a couple of times but I can't get the taste as my mom makes. Should try this recipe , may be it gets the same taste as my mom. Hope it.

I got prepared pasanday especially while meat preparation on Eid day. But still I could not cook. First I cooked couple of meat dishes, then barbecue but then we got fed up with meat and started cooking vegetables and lentils. Now I am looking for meat recipes again. Considering this pasanda curry for today.
