Lamb Korma and Indian salad
here is the recipe for the Indian salad..which i learnt from an Indian friend...so should be quite authentic..eh??
ingredients: 4 firm tomatoes, diced 2 brown onions, cut into thin rings 1 bunch coriander, chopped finely 125 ml Greek yogurt 1 tsp cumin powder 0.5 tsp salt
method: mix everything together and leave in fridge for at least an hour for flavours to mingle.
comments: The lamb is cooked using a spice mix...fry onions, brown the meat and then simmer in the sauce til tender. In this case, it stayed tough despite 2 hours in the slow cooker..perhaps i should have cooked it longer..:P but the girls didn't complain and commented that the lamby taste is not very apparent...also added some chopped apples and dates for fibre.. the green stuff you see behind...is mashed minted peas (from a can!)...and the white stuff, plain rice crackers...to substitute for papadums!! hehehe..!
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
