In Parsi tradition, when a child becomes of age, they get this really elaborate ceremony called Navjote. It's very similar to a bar/batmitzvah in which lots of family and friends celebrate tradition and good food. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend. Taking 5 weeks off from work was not acceptable. Lucky for me, though, they were doing a practice round with the food. Oh yeah, reaping the benefits of practice rounds. Nice!
First up: mutton kofta. It tastes a little burned on the outside but the meat was so tender and flavorful that it was completely forgivable. The ground meat is wrapped around a skewer and grilled until cooked and bursting with juices and flavors.
This is chicken malai which is similar to chicken tikka but whiter. However, unlike the chicken tikka, it was dryer. I think it suffered from being overcooked.
