Nihari is a very popular dish in the Indian subcontinent. Originating from the Mughlai cuisine, Nihari is an amalgamation of slow-cooked mutton, bone marrow, and spices. Nihari is slow cooked, traditionally overnight to achieve the flavors. Nihari comes from the word “Nahar” meaning morning. It used to be cooked by the Royal cooks overnight and was served to the kings and Nawabs in the morning for breakfast. In northern India Nihari is still served early in the morning for breakfast. Roasted flour is also added towards the end to achieve the smooth thickness.
