Yummy Lamb Curry

Assalamualaikum. Salam 21st Ramadan!

Today i'm sharing this dish but yet nothing fancy. It's just my first time cooked Lamb curry. LOL. I made it during our good friends came for Iftar together at our place on last saturday. It turned out very good! Got comment like 'Terbaekkk' from our honourable guests. hihi. And I also cooked Nasi Minyak, made bread pudding with custard sauce and dadih while Yati brought along yummy spagetti. Alhamdulillah..suka tengok semua orang makan bertambah-tambah even waktu sahur! :D

Actually, i googled the recipe and tumbled on sham jallaludin's blog. The original recipe used mutton but i used lamb rib..hihi apa je la yang ada dalam stok kan..but according to Yati, guna lamb rib lagi sedap. ;)

so here is the recipe:

The ingredients:

Daging kambing (mutton) cut into medium pieces ( i used cut lamb ribs)
about two inches of ginger, sliced into small strips
1 large onions. sliced
10 shallots. sliced
5 garlics. sliced
Rempah tumis 4 sekawan. a few of each cinnamon stick, star anise, cardamom and cloves.
Curry leaves
meat curry powder ( i used alagappas brand)
salt, dried chilli paste, coconut milk. prepare three thickness. One very creamy, one medium thick and one very watery. ( i used the medium think only ;))
some potatoes. cut into 4-6 pieces

The method:

1. Heat up your wok with oil. Once the oil is hot, put in the large onion, shallots, ginger, garlic, salt ( i leave salt to last step), curry leaves and 4 sekawan. Let it fry for a while.

2. Add about two big spoons of chilli boh and add two tablespoons of curry powder. ( i put 4 tablespoons) Mix them well.

3. Add the meat and mix well so that all the meat is covered. Keep stirring. Add some chilli boh and curry powder to enhance the colour and flavour ( i skipped this as i already put 4 tablespoons beforehand)

4. When the meat has decreased in size, add water until the meat is slightly submerged. Stir well. Leave to boil so the meat is tenderised. this will take a while.

5. when the water decreases, add the watery coconut milk and stir well. (i skipped this part). Let it boiled to tenderise the meat even more. This is the time to add in potatoes. Leave it to thicken.

6. then you can add the thick creamy coconut milk if you don't think it is thick enough. But if you feel that it;s thick enough, then you can go without. Just turn the fire off and leave it to cool down. (don't forget to put salt! ;D)

7. then serve it with rice, nasi minyak or eat it with bread, naan or others.

This Ramadan I vowed not to spend too much time in the kitchen. I cooked everyday menu and just make simple dishes. I could not bring myself to prepare many or extraordinary meals for our Iftar due to long hour period of fasting. Lucky, hubby's very understanding and not fussy eater. :)

Also after what happened to our suffered brothers and sisters in Syria, Egypt, Africa and Burma seem that I can't help myself thinking of how they're doing during this holy month and what they're eating. :( Anyway, only a piece of do'a sending from bottom of my heart to all of them..:'(

Till then.

Sama la dgn akak izu, masak simple aje. No kuih as previous ramadhan.

Sama lah kita kak, awal2 dulu semangat masak macam2 sampai penuh table tu. Last2 pinggan lauk tinggal 2 je. hehehhe. Tapi happy sangat sbb ramadhan kat sini banyak masak kat rumah. So duit jimat.

wah, kari kambing pekena dgn nasi minyak mmg terangkat... akak pun baru belajar masak kari... rasanya guna resepi yang hampir sama tapi dari blog lain...

sama la Izu, kami pun berbuka tanpa menu yg istimewa.... macam hari2 biasa juga... tak nak membazir kalau masak byk2...

Irfan pernah tanya kenapa kena puasa. Then saya explain yang ada orang yg langsung takde makanan. Nak suruh kita ni bersyukur sbb senang nak jumpa makanan. Yg kelakarnya dia tanya, " So orang tu kelaparan siang aje la, malam jer boleh makan?". Bila saya kata bukan siang jer, tapi berhari-hari, terus nampak muka dia sgt insaf... hihihihi

wahwahh sedapnyeeee tgk curry izu ni... pandai izu masak mcm-mcm skg.. bilelaaa nk terer cam izu..

betul izu, kitorg kat sini pon iftar masak sendiri biase-biase je.. memang tak beli lgsg kat luar.. sebab tak sedap pon. kalau nk beli pon kuih2 je.. we tried our best tak beli lebih dari rm10 sehari at bazar.. hubby pulak mmg tak suke buka mkn kt luar or beli.. nasib la ade maid tolong siap2 kan brg2 nk masak.. blk keje terus campak masuk kuali.. hehe..

tula kan.. bile tgk menu kite ni, walopon simple tp bersyukur kite dapat puasa n buka dgn fmly dlm keadaan aman damai.. tak dpt nk byg cemane saudara islam kite kt tempat lain tu.. =( hanya dpt doa jela supaya Allah lindungi diorg dr kekejaman.. Amin...
