  • Lamb shanks 1 kg

  • Carrots (grated) 3
  • Raisins 1/2 cup
  • Oil 3-4 tbsp

For Garnish:

  • Almonds (peeled and fried) as required



Heat oil. Add the lamb shanks and sear them well until brown. Next add the water and salt and lower the flame and let this simmer for 45-60 minutes until the meat is tender and falls off the bones.

Add the meat on top and let it simmer for 10 minutes on a low flame. Serve topped with the peeled and fried almonds.
