Re: LAMB CURRY

Hi,

you should try Peter's Lamb Curry. This outstanding recipe you will find in Jamie's book RETURN OF THE NAKED CHEF. For me this is the ultimate lamb curry.
Try it and enjoy.

Re: LAMB CURRY

Just in case you don't have the book, here's the recipe for Peter's Lamb Curry.

Peter's Lamb Curry (from Jamie's book The Return of the Naked Chef) - serves 8.

2 tablespoons butter
2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
285ml/1/2 pint stock or water
1.5kg/3 1/2lb leg of lamb, diced
1 handful of chopped mint and coriander
285ml/1/2 pint natural yoghurt
salt and freshly ground black pepper
lime juice to taste

Hot and Fragrant Rub Mix -

2 tablespoons fennel seeds
2 tablespoons cumin seeds
2 tablespoons coriander seeds
1/2 tablespoon fenugreek seeds
1/2 tablespoon black peppercorns
1 clove
1/2 a cinnamon stick
2 cardamom pods
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Curry Paste Ingredients -

5cm/2 inches fresh ginger, peeled
2 tennis-ball-sized red onions, peeled
10 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 fresh chillies, with seeds
1 bunch of fresh coriander

Preheat your oven to 170C/325F/Gas 3. 

Lightly toast the fragrant rub mix in the oven or under the grill.  Chop the curry paste ingredients roughly, add the rub mix and puree in a food processor. 

In a large casserole pan, fry the curry paste mixture in the butter until it goes golden, stirring regularly.  Add the tomatoes and the stock or water.  Bring to the boil, cover with kitchen foil and place in the oven for one and a half hours to intensify the flavour.  Remove the foil and continue to simmer on the stove until it thickens.  This is your basic curry sauce.

Fry the lamb in a little olive oil until golden, then add to the curry sauce and simmer for around 1 hour or until tender.
Sprinkle with chopped coriander and mint and stir in the yoghurt.  Season to taste and add a good squeeze of lime juice.  Serve with spiced breads, steamed basmati rice and lots and lots of cold beer.
 
Feel free to vary the curry by using diced chicken, prawns or paneer, or vegetables like Swiss chard, spinach, peas, cauliflower, fried aubergine, okra, boiled potatoes, chickpeas or lentils.

Enjoy!
