This weekend I saw Control Room , the behind-the-scenes documentary of Al Jazeera's work during the Iraqi war. Since upyernoz already did such a nice review for it, I'll take the lazy way out and just refer you to his entry hyah.

Instead, I present to you another installment of "Modern Muslim Cooking of Indo-Pakistan" which reminds me very much of something the Whizzo Chocolate Factory might market.

Sheep's Feet

It is another popular dish of this country. It is delicious and invigorating. It is prepared especially in winter.

10 sheep's feet
1/3 level tsp turmeric
2 flakes garlic
2 oz onion
1/2 oz ginger
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/2 lb curd
4 oz ghee
1/2 lb onion

Wash and clean sheep's feet. Scrap [sic] out hair and remove shoes (if not already done) and boil in water adding all the spices except ginger and garam masala till water is dry and feet are tender. Then fry them adding sliced ginger, garam masala and 4 oz. ghee. Again add water (sufficient to cook the feet and gravy required). Let simmer on low heat for two hours till ready. Sprinkle with chopped green coriander, green pepper, garam masala (curry powder) and fried onion slices. Remove from heat after 5 minutes and serve.
