Railway Curry with Achari Gobi and Onion Paratha
A rich lamb curry from the British colonial era in India…
Much of the India’s vast railway system was built during the British Raj era - including a stretch between Mumbai (formerly Bombay) all the way to Peshawar (in what is now Pakistan). The train known as The Frontier Mail ran this route and the journey time of 72 hours meant that plenty of provisions, including this delicious curry, would be provided to first class customers!
At the time the unadventurous British would eat this curry with a Scottish morning roll but we’re serving it instead with some North Indian favourites - onion paratha, a refreshing salad, a simple cauliflower dish known as achari gobi and a fiery carrot pickle.
