Mayaj - Sheep Brain Curry

... something interesting for lunch.

I popped out with a pal of mine for a spot of lunch at Akbar's Café in Bradford, an excellent lunchtime venue with a really interesting menu.

For starters, we had Liver Tikka and Panner Tikka; mains, curried Lamb Shank and Mayaj - a sheep brain curry.

Nutritionally, brain is phenomenal giving something like 4000% RDA of cholesterol, massively protein-rich and full of good saturated fats. The only thing that could make it any better would be to curry it, a popular dish in Pakistan.

I think the curry was very simple, just the brains, onion and spice base and some fresh coriander. Served with steamed rice, lovely!
