Re: HELP: Lamb Curry

Don't have an unforgettable curry recipe, but...here one that is terrific:

This is a true middle eastern recipe
Lamb in Tomato Sauce
6-8 large chops                          Salt and Pepper
2 TB butter                                2 TB chopped parsley
2-3 whole garlic cloves
1 large onion sliced                   1/2 tsp cround cinnamon
0.266 kg skinned chopped tomato or 224ml of whole tinned tomatoes chopped

Trim as much fat as possible from chops, flatten a bit.  Saute in hot butter until just colored.  Remove from pan an arrange in large pot.  Fry onion and garlic in sme butter until soft and garlic is golden.  add tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with parsley and cinnamon.  Cook for 3-4 minutes then add 1/2 cup water.  mix well and pour over the chops,  Simmer gently for 20-25 minutes until chops are tender and the sauce is rich and aromatic.  serve with rice or mashed potatoes.

I have one for Lamb couscous too if you want

Re: HELP: Lamb Curry

Cubed, I often buy the cheaper chops ( the fatty ones for the BBQ) and use those, I cut the met up with kitchen scissors.

This is our fave curry... its one I have fiddled with overtime, and we think it is perfect...
Adjust chilli to suit taste.. if the kids arent eating with us I use the chilli with seeds in & double the amountof red chilli flakes.
Sweat the veg in oil, ghee or butter.
