Recipe Idea: Lamb Curry with Leftover Lamb
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about a terrific Lamb Curry with Leftover Lamb that Don and I had for supper yesterday. A few days earlier we made a lamb shoulder roast. There are only two of us in our house, so a 4-6 pound roast lasts a LONG time around here. I wondered if I could make some kind of curry dish with it and decided to find a recipe. I found a delightful recipe on www.bbcgoodfood.com and modified it to fit our ingredients and tastes. Don loves flavorful food, but hot and spicy is not for him. I do like mine with a little bite to it, but I usually add some additional spices to mine when I eat it.
This recipe turned out to be both easy and delicious. We ate it over brown rice, and it was perfect. The lamb was nice and tender. It had loads of flavor but wasn’t spicy hot. If you would like it spicy, add 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika or 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper when you add the spices.
I think you’re gonna wanna eat this Lamb Curry with Leftover Lamb. Post a comment when you make the recipe, won’t you?
