Feel the heat with Handi meat

There are certain festivals and celebrations which are incomplete without the special Handi mutton made with some special twist !!

Every time you go to a place and eat this dish, you want to ask aloud: ‘Who made this?’ not to kiss their hands but to ask them to part with their recipe!! That is the thing with mutton; everyone has a different way of cooking it, and every new person who borrows a recipe will over the time add a personal touch to it.

handi meat

At Handi Restaurant, this spicy mutton dish is cooked on low charcoal for hours in a handi, or clay pot in true Rajasthani Style. You can simply close your eyes and order a Handi meat dish here and we promise to serve you the best !!

You can relish the various versions of this amazing dish with or without the side dishes like raita, lal mirch, dhaniya chutney, assorted breads, baati and have even delighted in the somewhat strange combination of Biryani with the gravy of Handi mutton.

Keeping the ingredients and delicious taste apart, it is slightly a time consuming dish. The handi mutton is as easy as any other non vegetarian dish, and the best part is that before you even know, it is finished and enjoyed. 🙂

Healthy Handi Fish

Are you a fish lover?

Well then you might feel happy to know that you have another very good reason to eat fish; its health benefits !!

Researchers worldwide have discovered that eating fish regularly – one or two servings weekly – may reduce the risk of diseases ranging from childhood asthma to prostate cancer.

Fish is low in fat, high in protein and an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids.
Regular consumption of fish can reduce the risk of various diseases and disorders.

Asthma – Children who eat fish may be less likely to develop asthma.
Fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids can also contribute to the health of brain tissue and the retina.

Cancer – The risk of many types of cancers are reduced by 30 to 50 per cent, especially of the oral cavity, oesophagus, colon, breast, ovary and prostate.

Heart disease – Eating fish every week reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke by reducing blood clots and inflammation, improving blood vessel elasticity, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fats and boosting ‘good’ cholesterol.

Dementia – Elderly people who eat fish or seafood at least once a week may have a lower risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Depression – People who regularly eat fish have a lower incidence of depression (depression is linked to low levels of omega 3 fatty acids in the brain).

Diabetes – Fish may help people with diabetes to manage their blood sugar levels.

Eyesight – Breastfed babies of mothers who eat fish have better eyesight, perhaps due to the omega 3 fatty acids transmitted in breast milk.

Prematurity – Eating fish during pregnancy may help reduce the risk of delivering a premature baby.
