Karl’s Mughal Gosht Dopiaza – Two Onion Lamb

Karl’s Masoor dal Pulao – Red Lentil Rice

I wanted a rice dish to go with my Mughal gosht dopiaza and saag paneer. Looking for Mughal rice dishes, the ones I found all seemed to be modern recipes that included tomatoes. Tomatoes would have been an uncommon ingredient in India in the 1500’s. Picking ingredients from several recipes, I created my own pulao, using spices that would have been common in the 16th Century Mughal Empire.
