Guess what…Madhur Jaffrey is back in my life. This time I went for a Spicy Prawn Stir-fry with a Goan-style Dal Curry with some chapatis that Lloyd Grossman lovingly made.
The lentil dal was good but I put way too much tomato in which wasn’t great. The prawns took all of about 4 minutes and were absolutely delicious, so they’d make a really great summery lunch if you served them with some salad. All you need to do is put some oil and spices in a pan, add a bit of garlic, then put the prawns in and fry for a couple more minutes. But seriously, get the book.
Sometime soon I might stop banging on about Madhur Jaffrey, but that day is not today. This time we had some leftover lamb so I found this recipe in Curry Easy – it wasn’t a super saucy curry but it was pretty spicy, pretty (very) delicious, and pretty easy to make, so this one is definitely being added to the roster.
I decided it was time to practice cooking meat because I’m a bit rubbish at it, and I really fancied something Indian tonight. So I did lamb leg steaks with a rogan josh sauce and vegetable biryani (which wasn’t amazing due to a yoghurt-based misunderstanding). I spent ages doing a lovely spicy dry rub for the lamb which you literally couldn’t taste at all when I put the sauce over it. Anyway it was alright really and I feel a teensy bit proud of it actually. Who knows, I might even try it again and get a recipe up.
