Amritsari Magaz Masala Recipe: How To Make Amritsari Magaz Masala
To begin with the recipe, first, take 7-8 pieces of lamb brain (magaz) and boil them in water with a pinch of salt and turmeric. Allow them to cook for 5-6 minutes. Next, we need to prepare the melon and onion paste. For this, fry the melon seeds in oil. Mix them in cold water and blend in a mixer to make a thick paste. Cut 4 onions into quarters and boil them. Rinse with some cold water. Mix these onion pieces with water and 3-4 tbsp of oil and blend to make a thick onion paste.
To make the tomato mixture, add a nice dollop of desi ghee in a pan. Once heated, add half of the garlic and ginger to it. Saute for around a minute. Once it browns, add the onions. Mix well. Once the onions turn golden brown, add the tomatoes. Add a pinch of salt at this stage. Saute well. Add red chilli powder and cumin powder. Allow the tomatoes to cook until done. Next, we need to make the gravy. For the complete recipe of Amritsari magaz masala, click here.
