  • – 1 banana, sliced
  • – 1 tsp curry powder
  • – 1 tsp mild paprika
  • – 30 g shredded coconut
  • – 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • – 250 g onions, finely chopped
  • – ½ tbsp coarse salt
  • – 20 g flour
  • – 50 cl lamb stock
  • – 200 g tomatoes
  • – 50 g curly parsley
  • – 500 g Basmati rice
  • – 50 g butter

  • Method:
    • 1 Cut the lamb in pieces and brown for five minutes with one sliced apple and the banana. Add the onions and garlic.
    • 2 After five minutes, add the curry powder, paprika and coconut. Stir and sprinkle with the flour. Add water or clarified lamb stock to cover.
    • 3 Add the bouquet garni, season with salt and leave to cook over low heat for 1 to 1.5 hours.

    • 5 Serve the lamb with diced apples sweated in butter, crushed tomatoes, chopped parsley and Basmati rice, without which the curry would be hopelessly incomplete.

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off
    the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
    issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks
