Eid is almost here and we are all looking forward to yummy meaty dishes. Almost all of our mothers have some secret ingredient or a tip to get rid of the smell of the meat.

A few members of The Current’s team asked their mothers about totkas that they use to avoid the smell. Here are a few tips by our moms.

All you need to do is add flour and water to the meat and mix it to coat evenly. Leave it for at least one to two hours. Then wash the meat with normal water.


One member’s mother told us to wash the meat with lukewarm water and salt to get rid of the smell.

Another tip is to make vinegar and garlic paste and spread it on the meat evenly. Leave it for 30 minutes and then wash it with water.
