Tongue Roast Masala Ingredients:
1 Onion of Garlic
1 1/2 Inch Ginger
8 – 10 Peppercorns
6 – 8 Cloves
2 Inch Piece Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
1 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
Tongue Roast Main Ingredients:
2 Table Spoons Vinegar or 1 Sour lime
While frying –
2-3 Broken Red Chillies
Half cut onion
2 Teaspoons Sugar to be Caramalised
Clean the tongue, salt it and keep it aside
Grind all the masala ingredients shown above, you don’t need to do it in a pounder, we had no electricity at that time so hand ground the tongue roast masala.
Now that your masala is ground, time to spice up that tongue.
Apply some vinegar on the tongue and then get ready to rub in the masala.
Apply the masala evenly on the tongue, don’t forget to turn it over and rub the masala onto the other side as well and now its patience.
We want the masala to get into the meat so we need to set it aside for 4 to 5 hours with a weight on it.
After the marination is done and your ready to cook the tongue, heat some oil in a pressure cooker.
Add the sugar to it and wait till it caramelizes.
Once the sugar is caramelized, add the tongue.
Add the broken chillies and continue to fry.
Then add the onions and continue to fry.
Turn the tongue over till both sides are fried.
Then add two glasses of water with any remaining masala
Then pressure cook for 45 minutes, post that open the pressure cooker.
Slice the tongue and then cook it again in the gravy
If there is extra water then boil it down,
Post that your tongue should be ready 🙂 This is as you will soon discover a delicacy, mouth watering and definitely loved by anyone who is willing to eat it. If you like our recipes, be kind enough to help spread and share them this motivates us to do more 🙂
