there is something wrong with the recipe. plz read the timings for stirring. howcome we can keep on stirring until the meat is cooked or stirring time is 510 min. water added is 34 cups,green chillies are 23 and we are cooking nihari in oven. this is ridiculous.

34 cups of water? You are off your head! Are you thinking of making this nihari in the bath tub? Crazy people!

i think there is typo error under the Preparation heading. Point 6 is not 34 cups of water, it is 3 to 4 cups and Point 10 is not 510 minutes it is 5 to 10 mins
