Travels For Taste Cooks Lamb Curry For Me and Mr R
My friend Manjiri is always offering to come to my house and cook for me. It suited us both recently to pick a mutually convenient day so I gleefully went off to the train station to collect Manjiri and her husband.
Manjiri had brought all the main ingredients including the lamb already marinated in a mixture of yoghurt and spices to help tenderise it. After a quick look around the kitchen to see what gadgets, pots and pans I had she got to work.
Whilst Manjiri created I made a raita and some thinly sliced onions with lime juice to have as side dishes.
The lamb was cooked in a large pot slowly which gave us time to get on with the other jobs that needed doing.
Manjiri gently fried the spices for the rice in a bit of coconut oil.
Plates were cleaned and we were all full but fortunately there was loads left over for the freezer for another day!
Cheers Manjiri and thanks for treating us to one of your authentic Indian lamb curries!
