Traditionally the cooking in India used to be done on coal fired stoves. Although I cannot imagine how much hard work it was, I’m sure it used to give a nice aroma to the food. To try and get a coal fire aroma in my dinner today I made Dhuan Goshth. This mutton recipe gets its great flavor from the burnt coal. I heated a piece of coal on the gas stove, put it over an aluminium foil inside the dish, pour some desi ghee over to get the smoke (dhuan) and close the lid. The flavors just seeped in to the main dish almost immediately and it tasted absolutely great with some home made roti. You should also try and make it on your own following this Dhuan Goshth Recipe.
