it looked rubbish but I fried it anyway, it didn’t turn out that bad..

I stole this idea from Jamie Olivers programme that’s on CH4 at the moment, it’s not really like his because I mostly used the tandoori spice mix I remembered I had in the cupboard and it’s not really a tandoori on account i don’t have a handy furnace in the garden but it was really tasty though, with a mild and coconutty flavour.

Lamb Tandoori:

tandoori lamb prep

I diced the lamb and coated it in a yogurt, lemon juice, oil and tandoori spice mix and left it to sit for 10 minutes while I got on with the sauce.

I fried off some onion until it was brown, then added some grated ginger, galangal and turmeric, some more tandoori spice, chilli and garam masala and garlic, oh and a few bits of diced pepper, cooked that out and then put in some diced tomatoes and a couple of leftover roast potatoes and a dollop of gravy from the previous nights dinner

pots, toms gravy

I cooked it a little bit and then added a sachetcreamed coconut of creamed coconut, some yogurt and a bit of water.

I put the lamb in the oven and made a paratha, which I cobbled together using some plain flour, rye flour and oil and then made into a dough with some milk, rolled it out, rolled it up, flattened it out and repeated, it looked rubbish but I fried it anyway, it didn’t turn out that bad..

When the lamb was done I stuck it into the sauce..
