What’s In It?

Sufia only serves Beef Nihari and despite it being so heavy, the herbs balances out the texture, making it lighter to digest. The green cardamom is for the flavour and the black cardamom is added to cut through the heat that releases in it. Although, you’ll never know what really goes into the making of this perfect cuisine as the family has kept the secret ingredient intact that has been passed on since generations.

If you’re not a morning person and it’s difficult to leave the comfort of your bed, worry not as they have a solution to everything. You can give them empty containers the previous night and go collect it later in the morning.
