Lamb curry made from real vegans.

Square

My kids have become increasingly distressed by the realisation that chickens and lambs etc were once actual cute little animals, and aren’t grown in a vat somewhere… (Margaret Atwood, that chicky nobs franchise is looking good 😛) So every now and again I make the effort to buy vegan replacements, but generally the selection in South Africa is limited when it comes to the kind of food I enjoy making.

So it was with great yayness I discovered that Fry’s has been expanding its range, and they now have lamb for curries.

Herewith today’s curry. Please note that this curry is about as authentically Indian as I am. It’s also pretty simple and you can go play around with ingredients etc. I still need to do a proper shop so I just used what I had on hand.

Ingredients:(ie: what I had in my fridge)

  • 1 packet Fry’s lamb pieces
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • curry powder (however you like it)
  • 1 yellow pepper (red would probably look nicer, whatever suits you.)
  • 4 cardomom  pods
  • 1/2 a lime
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • minced garlic
  • oil for cooking

Incredibly Difficult Recipe:

  • Cook Fry’s lamb pieces according to packet, + a few extra cracked cardamom pods and a teaspoon of medium curry powder, plus a few squeezes of lime, set aside.
  • Peel and cube 4 med potatoes, shallow fry until golden, drain off oil
  • cut up a yellow pepper, add to potato, toss in the fake lambkin, add 3 chopped spring onions.
  • Add some more lime juice and ½ cup coconut cream. (I would add more next time, to give this a “saucier” feel)
  • add in garlic/chillies/whatever seasonings you want (I just used garlic because the spawn are not big on heat.)
  • Stir through to cook – about 2 – 3 minutes
  • I served this over aged basmati, with a dollop of peach chutney on top

TADA!
