Yesterday i decided to make my girl friend this curry, it was going to be more of a traditional caribbean curry but i added a couple of my own twists on it by adding pasata.
From the shop i bought:
Onion, thyme, garlic, pasata, one fresh lime, chapati, green chilli and a green pepper, then i had the paprika, dried chilli and curry powder all ready in. I also bought the lamb from my local butcher.
First i season the lamb with fresh lime, the curry powder and thyme with a bit of malt vinegar.
I left it for a few hours but idealy over night is better to for the flavours to really penetrate the lamb.
Next i heated a big pan up till it was smoking and fried off the lamb making sure it was all sealed and browned all over.
Next i added one chooped onion, two cloves of garlic and some green chilli and continued to fry for another 10 mins or so just so everything was caramalised and browned.
After that i added about half a jar of pasata and mixed it all in keeping theh eat high so everything started to reduce and go nice and thick, i also added a dried smoked jalapeano and a bay leaf.
After a few minutes i then added some boiling water, the chopped potatoes and green peppers, bought everything to the boil then reduced the heat to a simmer and went to the pub for a few hours while all the flavours had a party and got to know each other.
I came back to it after a few hours and checked the lamb and potatoes to see if they were nice and soft, which they were, check seasoning adding slat and pepper to your prefered tasted then serve with fresh chapati, rotti or basmati rice.
I recomend a nice bottle of rioja or a cabernet sauvignon, after that i recomend more wine then later on brandy, but hey thats just me, feel free to just drink water.
