Trinity said...

dear can you tell me if its 6hrs and consecutively 1hr and or they are mins???

Rajani said...

Hi Trinity,
Welcome to my blog. Yes they are in hours not minutes. It is cooked in slow cooker or crockpot which heats and cooks at a very slow rate. I use slow cooker for that many hours because it cooks the meat tender and infuses the spices in to the meat. Alternatively u can cook this dish on stove top too. simmer it until lamb is well cooked and u can see a path when you slide the spatula through the cooking sauce. Hope this helps.

HI Rajani,
That was an excellent recipe and I have tried the same with wonderful taste. Thanks for sharing the same. By the way have you any idea what is "Nambi naluka" in telugu translates to the equivalent word in English and would it be available in Australia. Much appreciated if you can identify.
