I’ve been quite busy these days with winter holidays(It sounds a bit ironic actually). We are enjoying these days so much at my house. Everyday is a festive day with chatter,chai, sweet treats and savory as well. My mother has been cooking a lot too. And I’ve been meaning to share some of her recipes as well but always get short on time. Time is somewhat magical. I mean only yesterday I was eight(Not really), and just wanted a doll in pram( once I got it I moved on to something else), and was happy to lie for hours on a carpet with my head in mom’s lap( until the head grew big and she told me that it tires out her legs), listening to fairy tales……Oh God. Look what I’m writing now,and what I was supposed to write about.New year resolution: Ayesha Stop bantering.Focus,focus.(Will try,honestly!) Anyway, presenting mom’s mutton boti tikka recipe now. Which I helped her out with since it’s not a one person thing. It was gorgeous and delicious. Wish I had saved some botis for today as well.
- 1 1/2 kilo mutton/beef cut in 1.5 inch cubes
To Marinate(Mix following in a large bowl)
- 2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste
- Juice from 4 lemons
- 3 tsp red chili powder
- Salt to taste

- 12 tsp Raw Papaya( green papaya) paste
- 1 tsp oregano powder(optional)
- 5 tsp chat masala

*****Marinate the meat for approx 8 hours.It will absorb flavors and grow tender****
Finally set up your grill with hot coals.
Pierce the skewers through the botis/meat cubes
Keep turning the skewers until the meat is perfectly browned.
Serve with puris/parathas/naans/tortillas,& Sliced onions and lemons.
A MILLION SPLENDID HUGS &LOVE TO Y’ALL…….Hope people are done with their new year resolutions. I’m still working on mine 😛 Keep rocking like you always do. Best Wishes. 🙂 🙂 🙂
