Categories: Meats, Indian, Usenet
Yield: 4 servings
2 lb Lamb, cubed
2 T Coriander seed
1 T Cumin seed
2 lb Tomatoes, crushed
14 Garlic cloves, crushed
6 Bay leaves
Ginger (fresh), 2 inches,
1/2 t Black pepper, ground
1/2 t Cardamon seed
1/2 t Cinnamon
1/2 t Cloves
1/2 t Cayenne
2 t Mustard seed, ground
1 T Turmeric
1 c Wine vinegar
2 md Onions
2 md Potatoes
2 T Butter
Lightly roast the cumin seed and coriander seed by frying with no oil
for a minute or so, stirring constantly. Grind these and combine
them into a paste with the other spices, the garlic, ginger and the
vinegar. Add the lamb to the marinade and mix well. Refrigerate for
3-24 hours while mixing every few hours as convenient.
Finely chop the onions and potatoes and saute them for 5 minutes in
Add lamb and spice paste and simmer over low heat for half an hour.
The marinating does add a lot of flavor and makes the meat much more
tender. This can be skipped if need be.
* A spicy hot Indian lamb dish -- Very loosely based on Dharamjit
Singh's recipe in "Indian Cookery: A Practical Guide." Most
restaurants that serve this dish pronounce it vinDAloo, with the
stress on the second syllable.
: Difficulty: easy (though it's easy to burn the spices while
