In this blog, we share with you the three best recipes of Siri paye. Siri Paye is a traditional food of the Indian subcontinent. It is cooked on special occasions. The main ingredient is goat, sheep, ox or buffalo hooves which are cooked with spices. Cooking is said to have originated in South Asia and Central Asia by combining the art of cooking. The dish was adapted to the local cuisines by the Muslim cooks of Lahore, Hyderabad of Telangana State and Lucknow. Subsequently, paya became popular all over present-day India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is also served abroad in South Asian cuisine restaurants. Its recipes vary from region to region. It is fried with onion and garlic, mixed with spices in bones and meat, cooked for hours on low heat, and finally garnished with coriander, ginger and lemon.
Nowadays, SIRI PAYE can be made in pressure cooker due to time constraints, however the best way is traditional method of slow cooking, and doing so will make the meat soft and retain its flavours. As Siri Paye usually contains hard bones so its best to let it cook for a while in spices over medium heat, for it to be served fresh and hot from the pot at breakfast. This dish is best enjoyed in winter due to body heat that is released after consuming this spiced curry.
IJAZ ANSARI has added suitable amount of Ingredients in the curry while the feet have to be roasted separately which eliminates the raw smell of the feet. If cooking in a normal saucepan, cook on low to medium heat for an hour and a half. If the pies are not soaked, turn off the pressure cooker and cook again. Finally, the crushed garam masala, cumin and black pepper are added to add flavour and aroma.
The second most watched recipe is MUMTAZ CREATION recipe is the best recipe for making goat legs. His method is slightly different from the Ejaz Ansari. Mumtaz added the right ingredients to the curry and especially the choice of spices for frying and seasoning the curry is also commendable.
The third most watched recipe is FASIHA RIZWAN recipe is a unique recipe. If you don’t want to fry the feet separately, then you first boil the payee and add it in roasted spices and he also used whipped yogurt in his recipe, it can also give taste in it. So you can also make by this way. We apologize for the inconvenience, as we can’t mention all the other great recipes for this great dish but we have included only three recipes for the sake of keeping it short.
Furthermore, another benefit of this dish is it requires little to no oil, and can be cooked in its own fat with very little spices. Siri Paye should be cooked with natural herbs and spices.
