Yesterday I posted a vegetable rice with turmeric. So here is a quick lamb curry to go with it.
Ingredients: For 3 people
1 onion, finely chopped
Some vegetable oil to fry, or ghee if you prefer
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
Half a kilo of fillet neck lamb, diced......use a kilo for more than 3 people
2 tablespoons of paprika
1 teaspoon of dried chillie or chillie flakes
8 cardamon pods
1 pot of Greek yoghurt
Put some oil or ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and fry the meat until it is sealed. Take the meat out with a slotted spoon and leave it aside on a plate.
Then fry the chopped onion in the oil or ghee in the same pan if you like, and when the onions are golden add the garlic and stir for a minute. Add the cloves and cardamom and let them spit a little in the oil. Stir in the paprika and chillies.
Fold in the Greek yoghurt on a very low heat and add a little water. Put the meat back in and bring to a simmer. Cook for about an hour on a low heat on the hob.
Great for a Friday night meal with vegetable rice (see earlier post).
