Lamb curry from Salado

Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 28,817

This was basically what I did in Salado with a couple of exceptions.

1 A few black cardamom cloves and bay leaves in the whole masala

2 Added six or seven seeded plum tomatoes

3 Added a teaspoon of brown sugar, and a little hing (asafetida) powder

4 Used a very rich lamb stock instead of water. This gravy would normally be done with bone in goat or lamb so water is ok. It is better that way. Ashish and I decided this would be easier to serve this way.

    I forgot to mention that Caliking did the rice. I think I saw cinnamon and black cardamom and know for sure he put cumin seed in. Hopefully he will chime in with that.

    That lamb was amazing! The rice was a perfect compliment, but the lamb was spot on.

    Dude, you did a fine job. My FIL has been raving about how good it was. He can't believe a Canuck can cook like that.

    Bravo.

    @caliking:  Steven said you put black cardamom in your rice. I've never seen anything so big in rice. He invited you to tell us how you made it.

    @caliking:  Steven said you put black cardamom in your rice. I've never seen anything so big in rice. He invited you to tell us how you made it. 
    The rice was a jeera pulao of sorts.

    3 cups basmati rice, washed
    1-2 TBSP cumin seeds
    1 stick cinnamon (about 2")
    1-2 black cardamom
    Salt ( maybe 1 TBSP??)
    1-2 TBSP oil + 1-2 TBSP oil (or ghee)

    Heat the oil on med or med-hi heat and gently fry the whole spices (cumin, cardamom, cinnamon) until they are aromatic.

    Add the washed rice to the pot, with sufficient water to cook it.

    Maybe add another 1-2 TBSP of oil. Stir it all up. Add the salt at some point.

    Bring the pot to a rolling boil on high heat. Stir it well. Reduce heat to med or med-lo, and cover. Crack the lid a bit to keep the rice from boiling over. Check after 5 mins. Should take 7-10minutes after you lower the heat. The rice should be nearly done when it becomes fragrant and you can smell the rice in the kitchen.

    I didn't add salt because we generally don't add salt to rice. But I think it would have tasted better with some salt. I may have added a bay leaf or two, but things were getting fuzzy after drinking all of @henapple 's beer.
