Default Ghwashai aw Bendai. - 09-17-2010, 04:49 PM

Da Psa Ghwashai aw Bendai… (Okra with Lamb)
  • Bendai (as needed)
  • Lamb (da psa ghwashai, 2 lb) or as needed
  • 1 big Onion
  • Turmeric Powder (1/4 Tsp)
  • Green chilies (4, or as Desired)
  • Salt (as desired)
  • Oil (1 cup)
  • Oil (for deep frying Okra)
  • tomatoes (2 large ones)

I first deep fry the Okra. Clean the Okra’s tip and end and cut it in to smaller pieces. Take a pan and pour oil and put it on high heat. Once the oil temperature reaches high, add the Okra to deep fry it. Let it fry until you see the tips turn brown (light brown)

Put that aside.

Now lets cook the Meat.

Take a pan and add 1 cup oil and put it on medium heat. after 3 minutes or so add the chopped onion. And stir to medium golden color.

Once you notice the Onion is light brown add the meat and salt.

Keep stirring it. let the meat cook with onion and oil for about 8 minutes… add the turmeric powder

Stir it for about 5 minutes and then add chilies and garlic

Now keep stiring it and cooking it for about 15 minutes more. The purpose is to fry the meat with oil. If the meat is not fried enough it will have a smell that many people do not like.

Now add about ˝ glass of water and keep cooking it until the water evaporates and the oil comes on top.

Now add tomatoes, keep stirring to cook the tomatoes.

Now check and see if the meat is done or not. If not add more water and cook it.

Add bendai and stir it for a minute and serve it hot J

  • make sure ur meat is tender fully
  • make sure u fry the meat long enough to get rid of its raw smell
  • make sure you put some salt when deep fring the Okra
  • it is very desirable to put the mixture of meat and bendai on “dam” for a little while before serving.
  • serve it with warm afghan bread or chalaw J
