Yudhika Sujanani hosting the Navarathri episode on SABC 2’s Mela….

It’s almost time for another episode of Mela….this Sunday I will be preparing a traditional leg of lamb called Raan and serving it with home-made Naan bread. The Raan is marinated overnight and then slow cooked for a few hours and it sure is worth the wait. The meat is meltingly tender and delicious! Don’t forget to catch the show for more Mela this Sunday on SABC 2 at 10.30am!

I am so delighted that we get to shoot the Mela food inserts at Holi Cow…there has been much to celebrate! Click here to enter the AMC Gourmet Cookware competition: https://yudhikayumyum.com/competition/amc-giveaway/
