Backyard BBQ (1)
Caramelized onions, infused with cardamom, fennel, and cumin, form the basis for this classic Indian curry, made here with lamb and small, flat cipolline onions, and topped with crispy fried onions.
This is a popular dish in Mumbai's Null Bazaar market district.
Some Lucknow cooks add tiny amounts of mitha ittr, a sweet perfume, and lazzat-e-taam, a local spice mix, to the kebabs; neither is available here but we still find this recipe delicious.
