WWDH - Indian Lamb Curry



For Wednesday with Donna Hay this week, I chose Indian Lamb Curry from p100 of Modern Classics I.

The recipe as Donna wrote it did not contain any vegetables, and lots of meat.  I halved the meat and added 500g frozen veges to my curry so that it became a one pot dish.  I served it over boiled rice to suck up all the juices.

When making this, I made the mistake of adding ground spices to the pan, not realising that Donna intended to use non-ground spices, make them pop in the pan and then grind them.  As a result, a burned my spices a bit.  However, I was still really happy with the  finished curry and I would make this again.  Note that it is a fairly mild curry, so if you like it hot, bump up the amount of chilli powder that you add. 

To see what my fellow Donna devotees, Kayte, Margaret and Chaya, thought of this dish, visit their websites on Wednesday US time.

Good idea to add the veggies. Thanks for this one. It was on my short list.

I like adding vegetables to a dish, especially if you're just eating the dish!

This was a great recipe, we really liked it and I'm certain I will make this again and again as it was easy and so delicious! Great choice. Yours looks wonderful with all those veggies added...I had veggies but they were all carefully on the side and not much was "touching" -- someday I am going to grow up and eat like an adult, right? lol

I have never cooked with lamb--but curry is a favorite at our house. Looks like a very flavorful dish. I like plenty of veggies in my curry too.

I think I would prefer your version with the veggies over Donna's all-meat version. Looks delicious.
