Lamb Rogan Josh

I guess when you don't know what else to do with lamb or mutton, you start searching (Lamb Kofta Curry & Mutton Varuval). Search for what? Search for recipes. Where do we start searching? Go ahead. Aplenty recipes will pop up when you Google and these days, trust me, there's so many people who share recipes online. Did I copy the recipes? Nope. I read through and I coined this recipe of mine. Yes. Otherwise, why is my recipe different and for Lamb Rogan Josh which is actually lamb curry, what can really be different? We definitely need the usual ingredients? Oh, before I brush it aside, Rogan Gosh by the way is a Persian or Kashmiri style of curry. Persians and people from Kashmir origin I bet love their yogurt? So do I (Cucumber Yogurt Salad & Mor Rasam). In fact I love this yogurt ingredient concept. Always, most of the time, a tub of yogurt sitting in my fridge. What else should I say? Temptation to the highest degree. Lamb Rogan Josh is like a massive salivating temptation. 


Ingredients
400g lamb - cubed or cut into bite sizes
2 tbsp butter or margarine
2 medium size potatoes - cut into medium size cubes (optional)
2 tbsp yogurt

Coriander leaves for garnishing

1 1/2 tsp blended/pounded ginger
1 tsp blended/pounded garlic
Method
When butter is heated, fry the curry paste until aromatic and oil splits.
Add spices and stir in (1 or 2 mins)
Add lamb and salt for taste.
Keep stirring, about 2-3 mins to coat lamb over the curry paste.
Pour enough water and continue simmering until lamb is half cooked.
Add potatoes, stir and cook until lamb and potatoes becomes soft and tender.
Off the heat and tip in in yogurt and coriander leaves.
Gently stir and off the heat.

  1. I don't know what is it with technology? When I published my post in the morning I saw your update, then when I came back after finishing up with my breakfast it disappeared, your blog wasn't showing in my blogroll. I have to go in the google profile to check it and here it was, sometimes I feel blogger is not reliable.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
