News Americas, FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, Fri. Feb. 23, 2018: Pachownie, (pronounced Pa-chow-nie) Curry, is actually the Urdu word for lamb intestines. So Pachownie curry refers to sheep tripe or intestines curried, and is popular in Guyana. Here is my recipe for Pachownie Curry from my upcoming book, ‘Hot & Spicy: Caribbean Curries,’ set to be released on Kindle and on the iTunes store this June.

Ingredients

1/2 lb Sheep tripe/intestines cleaned

1/2 lb Sheep liver

Turn over the runner with chop stick or cleaned pointer broom.

Cut the stomach about 1 inch in length and width.

Soak all in vinegar.

Rinse and add flour and salt to all organs.

Wash and add to pot of boiling water.

Add onion, garlic and pepper to chopper or blender and blend.

In a large Dutch Pot or Kaharee, heat oil.

Mix garam masala, curry powder, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, and clove to seasoning mixture.

Mix into a paste and add to oil and cook for 1-2 minutes until curry begins to fry in.

Add all the organs, coat with curry and fry for a few minutes.

Cook on medium-low for 20 minutes.

Add salt and tomato paste and cook for another 20 minutes.

Add enough boiling water, and cook on low heat until water is absorbed and all the organs are tender. If organs are still hard, pressure cook for a few minutes until tender.

Serve with dhal and rice, roti or or dhal puri or separate as an appetizer.
