Or, brain cooked with spices. A classic Punjabi dish, it was quite good. Served with a mountain of my home-made chapatties on the side. The brain is very creamy and rich (brain is generally about 1/3 lipid), and it is not possible to eat large amounts in one sitting. Curiously enough, the brain is very similar in texture and taste to the milt of Pacific cod, a delicacy known here in Japan as shirako.
