Oh Yes Good Old Deejays..I remember the place and the one next door "MINAZ" but Deejays was better..and in the evening when we had real big buck we used to go Jafar's behind the Jamatkhana for the "Choma Nyama" & "Mishikaki".

Hey Latif, the memories are so good aren't they! I remember Minaz too, but we never went there. As girls we were not allowed to go to Jaffers, but we had chana bateta and amli outside khane! those were the days huh!?!

The recipe calls for "cream of coconut" which has sugar in it. I believe it should be Coconut MILK.

Saju said...

Tahera,
Creamed Coconut does NOT contain any sugar it is actually freshly grated coconut meat (the white part) which has been steeped in hot water until it is cool enough to handle. It is then squeezed until dry and the resulting liquid is then strained to remove all the pulp and allowed to sit for a while. The coconut cream rises to the top and is skimmed off.

Hi Saju

Thanks for all your wonderful recipes. I'm wondering if I can use coconut milk instead of creamed coconut for this recipe. Would appreciate a quick reply if possible:)

Thanks and take care!!

Hi there, I have just started doing Indian cooking and love this site. My question is how long do you cook the meat for before it is done?

Saju said...

Hi it depends on the cut. 2 inch cubes from the leg take about 45 minutes

Hello Saju,

I love your recipes. I have cooked channa bateta and mogo. They are favourites among my coworkers and friends. I am actually planning on cooking mogho for my lunch to work. I was wondering if you can do videos here as well.
