Instructions

Lamb curry

  1. Cook the lamb with the water and salt in a pressure cooker for 30-35 minutes on high. In the meantime, prepare the cauliflower rice. When the meat is ready, remove and reserve the stock.
  2. Heat the butter or ghee in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until they start turning brown, stirring constantly.
  3. Season with pepper, green cardamom, and cumin. Cook for 2 minutes until the spices become aromatic.
  4. Add the ginger garlic paste along with the lamb pieces and fry until the meat starts to get some color.
  5. Add tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes.
  6. Add the reserved lamb stock and simmer for about 5-10 minutes. To thicken the curry, you can now add the xanthan gum.
  7. Garnish with cilantro.
  8. Cauliflower rice

  9. Grate the cauliflower in the food processor or manually on the large holes of a box grater.
  10. Heat the butter over medium-high heat in a pan. When melted, add the cauliflower rice.
  11. Season with salt and combine well. Cover with the lid and cook for about 8-10 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender. Stir every 2 minutes to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan.
  12. Once the cauliflower is tender, remove and serve with the lamb curry.

    We made this tonight and my mum, who has slowly been adopting a less carbs WOE was very impressed. A few changes, we used lamb with bone about 600g, whole spices and ground them, and used ground dried ginger and garlic granules instead of the ginger garlic paste. Also omitted the xanthan gum and cilantro, instead reducing the liquid and then thickening it with 4 tablespoons of cream. Was the first time my mum had tasted cauliflower rice too and she said she didn’t miss the starchy rice! Definitely a curry to do again. Thank you Sahil and DietDoctor!

    Disappointed with this. Xantham gum made it too gelatinous.

    How long should I cook the lamb without a pressure cooker? This looks yummy!

    The tip is located under the instructions.
    Tip!
    If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can also use a large saucepan. Cook on low heat for 2-3 hours or until the meat becomes tender.

    First recipe I’ve cooked that wasn’t enjoyed at all. Very bland, needs much more adding to it.

    This is so delicious! The meat was lovely and tender. We took a page out of Rowie's book and thickened the sauce with cream instead of xantham gum. Absolutely yummy!

    Which setting should we use on the pressure cooker for this? Low, normal or high. Thanks

    You would use a high setting.
