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:
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.
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
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..:'(
