Foodnutt – Malai Boti

This is an absolutely stunning dish. It comes from Northern India where a lot of their food has a Persian influence. It would be true to say that this dish gives a party of flavours in your mouth.

Malai Boti with Minted Yogurt Sauce

This is a fantastic and easy Northern Indian dish that will give you a party of flavours in the mouth. It will pair well with a fresh Sauvignon Blanc, Rose or a Cabernet Sauvignon. It is super simple to make and can be made well ahead of time and left in the fridge to marinade. I left mine 8 hours and then grilled up but you can leave over-night as well. These would be fantastic for any BBQ.
