Where is your best Nihari?

Winter actually means Siri Paye and Nihari, at least for a true Lahoree :) . I found Mohammadi Nihari the best, it is simply great, even it beats Phajjay Day Paye. In Defence, they got a decent place for families downstairs and just think about quickly served garam garam naaan and Nihari….waaaaaaah kia baat hay :))

    And I thought Nehari is more of a karachiite dish, No :\

    Yes, basically it is karachi-based, but it is equally “al-mashhor” here in Lahore, like “paan” :) . khana is khana, no politics ;)

    How can anyone indulge him/herself in a dish of greasy, fatty curry made of animal waste?

  4. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on December 16th, 2007 @ 1:43 pm

    …Not even like once or twice in a year??? . If one knows the recipe, he/she can get indulged in quality stuff, nai?? if not frm the market, ppl do make them…i.e. “sire paye” and “nihare” specially in winters.

    Its not made up of animal waste, but who knows ;). Nihari gets that special greasy look by adding flour in it. Rest is meat soup and spices.

    The nehari I ate was not greasy and blah blah :\

    Animal waste … they use undercut in nehari no?

    Yeah, its undercut ofcourse…”tarka” makes it oily, but its not greasy, just a bit thick. “Hareesa” is more of a greasy traditional food.

    If you think Sabri is best then you have not eaten or seen real nihari.
    The aroma and taste of original Nihari is not even close to what Sabri is cooking.
    You have to dig down deeper in Lahore to find the real stuff. Haji Nihari in Rang Mahal makes the most authentic Nihari since ages. I can bet anything if someone finds a better or atleast similar what he makes. Give it a try and you will understand what I mean.

    A lahori–

    I had been to Lahoree Gate and it was around Fajar’s time to have Haajee Ke Niharee :)) , the best part was that it was served in steel plates and we were provided with gas burners to keep the gravy warm, and the taste was great, no doubt…Magarrr………i wud say both r equally good :), alhamdulillah.

    Nihari is my least favourite Pakistani dish …. and yet everyone else in my family loves it.
