"From a national supermarket. Serve with coriander leaves and yoghurt. Since made this scaling back for 1 shank and cooked up in a frypan and then put into a small casserole dish and covered with alfoil and cooked in the oven for 2 1/2 hours and served with rice, yoghurt and some steamed vegetables for a delicious dinner though when scaling back it only called for a 1/4 cup of beef stock I added 1/2 cup to make sure I would have some sauce."
