This is a simple meat roast for Passover. It is usually served with Kifte de Prasa. It so be noted that some Greek families did not eat boiled potatoes on Passover since they consider that the cooked potato "rise up" like the leavened bread. Rice is another food that is forbidden on Passover, yet the Jews of India do eat rice throughout the year. The Passover laws vary from region to region, each community establishing its own tradition.
