Lamb/Mutton Roast in Coconut Milk

Lamb/Mutton Roast in Coconut Milk

Another busy week has come to an end! It's amazing to see how FAST time is flying! Last night after missy had gone to sleep, I organized christmas pressies!!! (yeah I know its only september) ... We have about 10 weeks till our big holiday trip, so I am slowly getting organized for christmas
Anyways last weekend, we had a couple over at our place for Sunday lunch. The wife hails from Kerala, India while the hubby has Tamil roots, so lunch was a mix of both cultures ... This dish falls under the keralite category ... I love cooking with coconut oil and this dish has coconut oil and milk and smells so YUM! ... If you dont have a pressure cooker, you can still make this dish ... the pressure cooker just softens the meat a whole lot more
Before getting into the recipe, I must tell you some EXCITING news! I have announced on the Eaterspot's facebook page that for the whole month of October 2014, its going to be giveaways!!!! So honored to have Vogels, Mrs Rogers, Paneton French Bakery, Ella's trinklet box and That's neat contribute something to this month long giveaway ...

    First up, place the washed lamb in a pressure cooker and add the first 5 ingredients - turmeric, garam masala, salt, ginger and garlic paste and about 1/4 cup water. Some folks don't add water at all.. I let it go for a few whistles and then removed it from the heat. This makes the lamb reallllly soft

    Once that is done... heat some coconut oil in a non stick pan, and add the sliced onion and garlic paste. Once the onions have softened, add the curry leaves, tomatoes, turmeric and chilli powder

    Give it a few minutes till the 'raw' smell of the masala becomes fragrant. Then add the cooked lamb along with the water from the pressure cooker

    I let it cook until the liquid in the pan had dried out. I also seasoned it with salt - so you need to check if you need any salt. Finally I added the coconut milk and cooked it on medium low until the liquid reduced again
