I had this shoulder of lamb that needed eating.. Was just going to roast it whole .. Yet I would be the only one that ate it.. Mrs Fitz not being a big fan of roast lamb.. I cannot understand it meself!
So Saturday night became curry night.. No need for a take-away .. Although of course they have their place and there is indeed a new place opened near us that we do want to try.. I just hate the waiting and the price !
Dispatched the lamb through the mincer .. Plenty of lamb now.. Am already thinking shepherds pie..
Yet have gone for a Mr Fitz kofta meatball thingy curry.. With French beans..
Perhaps I started this one a little backwards .. Onion in first a little clarified butter.. Not ghee..
Then the meatballs made small with coriander , cumin and med flower salt
Then some spices.. and some dried fenugreek leaves.. Then tomatoes paste.. Ginger and garlic paste and adding water and the French beans …
Left to bubble away before adding a good dollop if unsweetened natural yoghurt .. Made wrong? What can be made wrong when it tastes so good right?
And I gave to admit to be slightly addicted to the mushroom and petit pois curry! This time fried onions in clarified butter .. Adding spices.. And tomatoes.. Then the lovely button mushrooms and frozen petit pois..
This is simply wonderful! And if course a fraction of the cost.. and a fraction of the oil for sure!!
To serve with? Gotta be flatbreads..
This time practicing with a little yeast and unsweetened yoghurt .. I have decided I prefer the breads made with Mrs Middletons oil and flour.. These rose good though! I love watching the bubbles rise.. And the smell of the fresh bread is beautiful..
Then of course a few beers.. And a couple of wines before tucking into the Saturday night curry ..
