Making low carb simple
- 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.
- Heat the butter or ghee in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until they start turning brown, stirring constantly.
- Season with pepper, green cardamom, and cumin. Cook for 2 minutes until the spices become aromatic.
- Add the ginger garlic paste along with the lamb pieces and fry until the meat starts to get some color.
- Add tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes.
- Add the reserved lamb stock and simmer for about 5-10 minutes. To thicken the curry, you can now add the xanthan gum.
- Garnish with cilantro.
- Grate the cauliflower in the food processor or manually on the large holes of a box grater.
- Heat the butter over medium-high heat in a pan. When melted, add the cauliflower rice.
- 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.
- Once the cauliflower is tender, remove and serve with the lamb curry.
If you want to cook the lamb in a slow cooker, cook on low heat for at least an hour until the lamb is tender and falls apart easily with a fork.
The tip is located under the instructions.
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.
