I felt like a curry last night but wasnt sure of a recipe and I had to shop before going home. Time for a cheat's curry!
This range of sauces are 'never fail' as they never fail to satisfy our taste buds. I've made quite a few authentic curries from acratch now but these sauces are brilliant. All I had to do was brown an onion, brown off some lamb shoulder (chops that I trimmed off), simmer until tender then add natural yoghurt before serving. I served it with a raita (I am addicted) and I puffed some pappadums in the microwave. I am out of naan bread (usually kept in the freezer)! Another favourite of mine is Sri Lankan Chicken Curry... This one (below) you add coconut milk to it, oh so good!
I did consult my Rick Stein's India book when I got home and next time I am going to try his Lamb Dopiaza - all of the ingredients go straight in a pot and cook for 2 hours (I might try slow cooking for 4 hours in my crock pot)...
Lamb shoulder, onion, garlic, ginger, yoghurt, coriander, turmeric, cumin, cloves, cinnamon stick, kashmiri chillis, peppercorns, cardamon, ghee, salt and water.
I hope you are staying warm wherever you are in Aus - our days are getting longer again, its not dark at 5pm anymore... Yay!
