We bring Har Gao Prawn for you to enjoy this season. Made with the juiciest prawns cooked to perfection, Har Gao Prawn is made by Chef Vadim Shin of Yazu Restaurant.

|Salt (as per taste)||5gm|
In a medium bowl, combine the wheat starch 80gm, potato starch 100gm, and a pinch of salt. Make a well in the center and pour in about 150ml of the boiling water. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to stir. The dough will look white and shaggy.
Add the oil, stirring it into the dough. If the dough looks dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of boiling water. If it looks too wet, add a bit more wheat starch. The dough should have the consistency of modelling clay. Transfer the dough to an unfloured work surface and knead by hand until it’s very white and smooth for about 3-5 minutes. Cut the dough into 3 or 4 pieces, according to the dumpling recipe you’re using, place into a bowl and cover it with a lid, then set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
Take a small ball of dough of about 1-inch diameter. Roll it into a thin round disc of about 2 inches in diameter. Make sure the casing is thin, else it will not cook thoroughly and won’t let the prawn fillings cook evenly. Now let’s stuff the fillings. Take about a teaspoon of the prawn filling and place the filling in the centre of the disc. Carefully shape the disc into a dumpling. Steaming time will be according to the temperature of your steamer.
3. Tiranga Yakhni Pulao
Every Indian at heart loves a relishing pulao. We bring you the Tiranga Yakhni Pulao by Executive Chef Prashant Bhoir of Kebab Corner. This Pulao is one of those Tiranga Recipes made with tender Mutton and is packed with the best Indian masalas for everyone to enjoy this classic dish.

|Kashmiri chilli paste||2tbsp|
|Curd beaten||2 cups|
|Mutton stock or water||2 cups|

Heat the ghee and add all the whole garam masalas bay leaf, cardamom, mace & cloves. Once the masala starts to splatter, add the chopped ginger and chopped garlic. As the ginger garlic starts to get golden brown, add the sliced onion and cook till it is translucent and soft. Add the beaten curd and cook till all the water from the curd is evaporated.
Add the Mutton and saute it for 5 to 7 minutes, add salt and saffron, and close the lid of the cooker. Generally, it takes around 4 to 5 whistles of the Pressure cooker for mutton to cook. Meanwhile, we can start with the Pulao, wash and drain the basmati rice, and keep the mutton stock on heat till it comes to a boil. Take a heavy bottom pot with a tight lid, heat it on low flame add the ghee to the pot.
Add the washed basmati rice and stir it slowly without breaking the rice, once it is slightly coated with fat, add the boiling mutton stock and close the lid and let it cook on low heat. Meanwhile, we will make the mint drizzle in a blender jar, add the mint oil, salt, and sugar and blend it into as fine a paste as possible and leave it aside.
When the rice is almost 80% cooked, switch off the gas. Once the Mutton is cooked, top it up with the rice and fried onion, continue to cook till the rice is well cooked. Serve it hot with a drizzle of mint drizzle on top and accompanied by any raita of your choice.
