  1. Hi ….this is very interesting.
    The similar recipe is prepared in southern part of Kolhapur and some neighbouring states. It is called Rakti. Means Blood dish. This is of two types. 1 Mundi Rakti and viscera Rakti.

    In Mundi Rakti, only head meat of goat is cooked its usual style and then at the end of end Rakti ie blood is mixed with the same to give a flavour. Similarly visceral organs like stomach, small intestine and lung is cleaned and cooked and at the end mixed with blood. This blood is collected while sacrificing a goat and stored for recipe. After collection it is mixed with salt. Clots are formed which are broken by hand before mixing with either head meat or gut meat. This recipe is basically prepared during religious sacrifices of goat.
