• Small piece palm sugar, grated

• Small knob ginger, grated

• Add the following spices directly into the pan: 1 tablespoon each coriander seed, paprika, turmeric, ground cumin. Add ½ tablespoon each crushed chili, cumin seeds, sumac, dried mint, ground coriander and ground black pepper. Add 1/2 teaspoon each hing powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Cook together several minutes.

• Tuck in 3 or 4 pieces of oxtail and add 1 cup whipping cream along with 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer

• Continue cooking for about 2 hours, loosely covered, until the oxtails are tender and falling off the bone. During this time, top with water as needed so that sauce doesn’t over-reduce.
