Fruity Lamb Curry

Filed under: Food,Recipes — Ben @ 10:14

My younger son, Oscar, asked me to put bananas into the lamb curry I was planning to cook. Which inspired this:

Ghee
Chopped onions
Diced ginger
Cumin
Coriander
Cardamom
Fennel
Fenugreek
Cloves
Star anise
Chilli
Diced leg of lamb
Raisins
Banana
Dried apricot
Lemon
Yoghurt
Salt

Fry the onions in the ghee. Add ginger and ground spices and fry for a minute more, then add the diced lamb and brown. Add the raisins, banana (sliced), dried apricot (roughly chopped) and lemon (cut into eighths, including skin) and some yoghurt. Cook on a medium heat until the yoghurt begins to dry out, then add some more. Repeat a couple of times (I used most of a 500ml tub of greek yoghurt). Salt to taste. Eat. The lemon is surprisingly edible.

I served it with saffron rice and dal with aubergines.
