The Importance of Comfort Food

Yum :) We also had more breads from Greenlands...

This isn’t just a blog on eating, as much as I love to talk about it!

My latest comfort food is Lamb Saag, although lamb is costing such a lot of money these days and I wonder sometimes if I don’t spend just a little too much money in the supermarket.  What I intend to do is to add recipes every now and again – if you feel like cooking them, knock yourself out!!


(serves 4 )

3 cloves garlic

2cm piece ginger

3 green chillies

1 large onion

750g diced shoulder of lamb

2tsp ground coriander

1tsp turmeric

2 cardamom pods, crushed

2 tsp ground cumin

4 large tomatoes

300mls lamb stock

200g spinach chopped

Puree the garlic, chillies, ginger and onion.

Brown the lamb, remove from pan.

Fry the spices for a few minutes, until fragrant, add the puree and cook for a couple of minutes.

Add the lamb, tomatoes and stock.  Stir, cover and cook for 45 minutes or until the lamb is tender.  Add the spinach 3 minutes  before the end of cooking.

Serve with naan or basmati rice.
