The Best Lamb Madras Recipe
Looking for a perfect Saturday night dish? This heavenly slow-cooked lamb is rich in Madras curry and spicy potatoes. It is a fiery lamb curry that embodies the flavours of South India, giving you a flavourful dish that is a sure-fire hit at parties or just for family dinners.
It uses lamb chops cooked in a curry, made up of the curry leaves, mustard seeds, tamarind and yogurt. It is a fragrant, rich and intense curry that is popular in British Indian restaurants, and is a great change from the usual baltis, kormas and jalfrezis that you may normally order.
