  • Yeah seemi we used to do the same but since last two years we found this farm run by some Arab person who lets us do qurbani on the premises and even helps in cleaning and cutting the way we like. Really in Toronto everything is so convenient.That's good you guys are having eid on friday too because some places in Pakistan have eid on saturday, unbelievable isn't it? I am going to try Namak mandi mutton karahi by sara riaz tomorrow. I will let you know for sure. By the way I tried Rida's shami kababs and chef mehboob's chicken pulao. Both turned out great. Plz keep posting ur comments and suggestions I love to read them. Take care and May Allah bless you all. Ameen

  • Tried Prawn curry. I made it with 1/2 kg cleaned prawns. i added 1 tbsp tomato paste to make gravy little thicker. Its a very good recipe and I suggest that u plz try it with confidence. Lemon juice quantity can be adjusted acc to taste, I use about 2-3 tbsp lemon juice for this amount of prawns.
