Nihari paya not Nihari gosht  and Kulcha

"Nihari"  is the traditional morning meal to break the nights fast. The meat is cooked on slow embers through the night to melting tenderness and served in the early hours of the morning.

"Lucknowi Kulcha" -  is a feast in itself. Leavened dough is topped with a small circle of dough mixed in the staggering proportion of 1Kg flour with 750g of pure ghee. This is rolled out and put into a hot oven. This results in a superb bread with an unbelievable flaky crust.
