Laal Maans is an authentic Rajasthani meat dish. The literal translation of “Laal Maans” is Red Meat. Traditionally, this lamb dish is prepared with red chillies and curd. However, the recipe I followed, doesn’t use curd. Instead it calls for Kachri powder, which is the powdered form of wild cucumber, commonly found in different parts of Rajasthan. This powder not only gives a tangy flavour to the dish, but also acts as a tenderiser. I got the recipe fom NDTV Cooks.

As I could not get hold of Kachri powder, I used a slice of Kiwi fruit, which is a good meat tenderiser.
