This is one of Rajputana’s legendary specialities. In days of yore, when hunting was common pastime, both for royals who held sway over huge tracts of forest, as well as the common folk who enjoyed bagging one for the pot, jungli (of the jungle) maas (meat) was simply game meat of the day prepared at the hunting camp. The meat was marinated through the day, and cooked with minimum condiments—salt, red chili (a Rajasthan staple), and ghee (clarified butter). Hunting is now banned in India, but poultry, lamb, and fish have kept various jungli maas recipes alive. Eaten with roti, it is delicious. And fiery.
