Christmas is a delightful season for carnivores. It is the time to devour delicious roasts. Roasts are usually done for large tender cuts of meat. Prior to roasting in an oven, meat is generally ‘browned’ to impart a traditional flavour and colour to the roast. The stuffing can be varied but typically bread, chestnut, sage, pork sausages, cranberries, are used. What is a Christmas spread without a roast after all? From crackling Pork Belly stuffed with sage and garlic served with Lentil Stew to a Roast Lamb with apricot stuffing, Mumbai restaurants have some exciting roasts on offer. So relish your roasts this Christmas as you sip mulled wine and listen to carols.
