Mallugirl said...

wonderful sounding recipe. Any particulars on the type of stone used?

Abdullah said...

I tried "Pathar Ka Gosht" it is very delicious. For peope who want to know what the flower is, you can find black flowers in nahari ka masala packets.

Abdullah said...

Based on Alaa Hazat's (Nizam's) tradition, I believe meat gets ooked between two stones. I tried this with placing the marinated meat pieces between two granite stones. The stones were placed inside a charcoal BBQ on the grill.
The 'Pathar ka Gosht' turned out amazing soft and spicy with charcoal aroma. Everyone loved it.

can we use pizza stone instead of granite ?

jaya said...

Hi,ur information on this recipe is mindblowing, thanx for sharing recipe and knowledge.

anjum said...

Asak lubna..im not aware of what a pizza tone looks like..anyways i also wanted everyone to knw tht u get granide utensils as well..for cooking..u can find thm at stone making or pot selling outlets..they r just the same like mud made utensils tht we usually prepare biryani in..

Abdullah Ahmed said...

Asaalamu Alaikum Lubna,

The trick is you need two stones and need to sandwich the meat between the two stones. Using 2 pizza-stones would also give you same affect but your cost shoots up.

if you go to any stone shop and ask for 2 slabs of granite stones of good size e.g 12in x 12 in would be fine. Your cost would be negiligible.

But remember the key is to have the meat pieces between 2 stones.
