We're having guests for lunch today...which means a huge spread of food!
My mother in law is the queen of cooking tasty traditional recipes. Although, her main ingredient for all her food is ,,,,OIL!!...the killer! She says there HAS to be oil floating on top....only then it looks and tastes good!!....
Today im going to post her famous recipe for 'lamb roast'........ Dont worry! Its okay to eat sinfully once in awhile ;)
We made this dish with 2kgs of lamb...But to make it easier for you, Iv halved this recipe. The recipe may seem long and troublesome....but once you have got your onions cut (which is the horrid part) your half done already!
You can serve this dish with rice or parathas....We made coconut rice.....recipe on my next post.......enjoy and grow fat!! oops!
INGREDIENTS:for the lamb:
1 kg lamb
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
for the masala:
2 tbsp ghee (optional)
cardamom- 3 , elaichi- 3, cinnamon- 1 small piece
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
2 big onion , finely chopped
2 big tomato
green chilli - 3 big, ground
1 tbsp chilli powder ( as per taste)
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp cumin powder
2 tsp garam masala
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 handful pudina/ mint leaves
- wash the lamb and put it into the pressure cooker along with the ginger garlic paste. Add only enough water to cook the lamb.Don't add too much water. Wait for a few whistles till the lamb is cooked. Remove from the stove and keep aside.
2 . Put oil and ghee in a big pan.
3. Saute the cardamom, elaichi and cinnamon.
4. Add the chopped onions and saute till it becomes slightly brown. This make take awhile.
5. Add the ground chillies, tomatoes and the ginger garlic paste.
6. Add the chilli powder and turmeric powder and stir for a minute.
7. Add the pepper, cumin powder and garam masala to the lamb mixture and stir.
8. Add the tomato puree.
9. Then pour the lamb mixture to the masala.
10. Add pudina
I added too much of water to the lamb when I was cooking it in the pressure cooker. So you can see in the above picture that there is alot of liquid......Don't fret!!!!! We can fix it...Simply take the liquid out into another sauce pan and boil it on a high flame till it reduces. Then add it to your dish! Simple.
Anyway since you know my mistake, I dont think you can go wrong in the first place! :)
