Smoked Beef with Fermented Soya Beans!


This is Smoked Beef Stewed in fermented Soya Beans. A Naga (People of Nagaland) Delicacy, this authentic Naga recipe is right from the Kitchen of a Naga friend who is also an excellent bachelor Cook. Fermented Soya beans or Akhuni in nagaland, Hawaizaar in Manipur and Turumbai in Meghalaya is a part of the North eastern cuisine. Very pungent, you need to acquire the taste before you can actually enjoy this dish, but once you have gotten used to it, there will be no stopping you huh!

Anthony,
are u aware of the sexual harrasment of a northeast( mizo) girl from the faculty of law , delhi university? the incident happened on friday 22/september/2006 at the arts faculty compound, university of delhi.

@Kavita: Well, preparing it the manipuri way is a very spacialised skill, since we use a special leaf to cover the soya after boiling it so that it is fermented and not rot. Fermenting is anaerobic decomposition I believe, and you will need air tight containers and stuff.. I wouldn't actually know how to do it. We buy this stuff from Brahmin Cooks who specialise in preparing the same.

@ Anon: You might have to find out in google. But it should be available in every asian food store or asian food section of a store. This is quite a common asian food.
