Click to view full size! Firstly, I'm not very accurate with quantities; I recommend adding the spices to taste!! It's also a loose interpretation, as I had to go with the ingredients I had. But boy it was tasty! 1/2 tsp cardamom seeds 1 1/2 tsp coriander seeds 1/2 tsp fennel seeds 1 tsp dried chilli (or to taste) Pound together in mortar & pestle, then add in approx 50gm raw cashews and 2 tsp salt. Add 1/2 tsp each black pepper, cumin, sweet paprika, turmeric and mustard seeds, and 1 tsp finely chopped lemongrass. 1 kg lamb chops. (I used loin) Remove excess fat and chop into small-ish pieces, leaving the bones intact. Caramelise lamb on both sides before removing from pan. Add 1 brown onion, cut into wedges. Fry until just translucent, then add 1 heaped tsp minced ginger, 2 heaped tsp minced garlic and 2 long red chillis, finely chopped. Add the spice mix, and fry until fragrant. Add 4 tomatoes, chopped into wedges and add the lamb. Then 1 415ml can light coconut milk. (I think it's a traditional no-coconut curry, with 1/2 cup cream and water instead. I didn't have any, but this coconut milk was really mild in flavour anyway. Could probably have used evaporated milk also.) Cassia bark was what I used. Had a Melanesian curry on a trip to Vanuatu with cassia in it, and it was just amazing! Cassia is very similar to cinnamon, but a bit woodier, milder and less bitter. I used 3 finger-sized pieces, this might equate to 1/2 or 1 cinnamon quill. Just placed in the pot once the liquid is added. Also, 4 tablespoons each tomato paste and natural yogurt. I also added about 1 tablespoon sugar, just to help balance the sweetness. Lid on at this point, and a gentle simmer. To this was added about 50gm whole raw cashews, 300gm pumpkin in smallish chunks, and 1 sliced carrot. 20 - 30 minute simmer, after which a couple of handfuls of sugar snap peas were added. (Hardly authentic, I know, but it was that or cabbage in my fridge, and I was NOT serving a meal without green veg in it! ) Served with rice, pappodums, more of the natural yogurt and mint. Could have done with a squeeze of lemon juice over the top, but I didn't have any. Soooo good! NB: there may have been spices I forgot to mention... I can't think of any more at the moment, so it should be right. Hope you enjoy!
