Last week on the gorgeous blog Manu's Menu I immediately loved this recipe for Lamb Korma. Not only does it look delicious but it also has amazing step-by-step photos so you get it right!
I really love curries and am continuously trying to improve on my cooking of them.
You start by making the almond masala which is a blend of almonds, garlic, ginger, chilli, and cumin. The lamb (I used chops cut into pieces) is browned and then removed.
You cook the whole spices in the same oil followed by the onion.
In goes the almond masala and once that is looking amazing yoghurt is slowly incorporated. Finally the lamb goes back in along with cream and salt. This is left to simmer for 1 hour. At that point you add sultanas and garam masala and let it simmer for about 30 minutes longer.
This tasted truly delicious, the sultanas add so much more then you could imagine. Its an ingredient I had never used in a curry before. It was spicy and creamy with a touch of sweetness. The lamb was falling of the bone and melted in your mouth.
I also cooked some chapatti to go with our korma using this recipe.
I kneaded the dough for about 10 minutes before making little balls and rolling as thin as I could. They were cooked on a super hot dry pan and puffed up quite well.
They tasted really delicious and were the perfect accompaniment.
