Eid-ul-Fitr is being celebrated world over today, on 25th May 2020. The festival marks the end of the month-long fasting period Ramadan. There are many traditional recipes that are eaten on this day, from Biryani to Phirni to Sheer Khurma. These are mostly recipes that are handed over from generation to generation in every household. But what if we told you there was a restaurant-style recipe to make your Eid celebrations even more delectable? Raan-E-Umrao is one dish which is often found in the menus of restaurants, and can easily be recreated at home with this recipe. The recipe uses a tender lamb leg as a base which is then cooked in a style you would have never tried before.
Ummrao Restaurant at Courtyard By Marriott, Mumbai International Airport has shared their exclusive recipe for Raan-E-Umrao. This meaty preparation from their kitchens uses basic ingredients that are easily available in the kitchen. The name 'Raan' stems from the leg part of the lamb which is used in this delectable recipe. Though this succulent recipe is traditionally made in the clay oven, or tandoor, if it's being recreated at home it can be made in a grill also. Without further ado, here's the full recipe of Raan-E-Ummrao for you to try at home!
