Shorshe Phuler Jhaal
Shorshe phool bata
Heat up some mustard oil in a pan. Toss in a handful of the cumin seeds, two whole chillies, some of the sliced onions and fry together lightly. Next, add the garlic paste (about two large dollops – it helps to produce much of the flavour). Add the main ingredient — the mustard flower paste. Sprinkle salt and sugar to taste and cook on a low flame till fragrant. Pour a few more drops of oil and a pinch of turmeric. Stir-fry till ready. Squeeze a bit of lime juice onto the preparation before serving.
Shorshe Phuler Jhaal will be a sure shot hit at the table. The sharp, pungent dish bursting with delicious flavours gives the perfect pick-me-up lull for the afternoon, post playing with colours.

Sprinkle lemon juice and red chilli powder to the boiled mutton. Heat mustard oil in a pan. Pour the onion, ginger and garlic juice in the mutton, and knead together so that the mutton absorbs the marinade. Add the chopped raw onions into the hot oil and fry.
Next, add some salt and the chopped garlic. Then split two green chillies and add to the chopped tomatoes and chopped green chillies. Fry lightly. Add the marinated mutton pieces. Fry until golden and some gravy has formed. Add some ghee. Remove from pan and keep in a serving dish. Garnish with coriander and lemon slices. Serve piping hot on a bed of steaming Basmati rice, and your Holi lunch menu is sorted!
