Finishing the curry lamb:

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch coriander (cilantro), leaves separated and roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 11″ piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 6 to 8 long green hot peppers, roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large tomato, cut into rough pieces
  • 1 teaspoon each ground tumeric, black pepper, ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • dash ground nutmeg
  • 2 loaves of seitan lamb (recipe above), cut into 1/2 inch cutlets
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1-1/2 cups hot water (divided), plus more as needed
  • 2 white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ thick round pieces

Cooking Directions

  1. In bowl, combine coriander, garlic, ginger, and chiles. Using mortar and pestle, or pulsing in food processor, make into paste. (If necessary, add up to 1-1/2 tablespoons water.) Set aside.

  2. In skillet, heat oil and saute onion until golden. Add ground paste and cut-up tomato to skillet and cook an additional 5 minutes, stirring so mixture does not burn. If mixture gets too dry, add a few tablespoons of water if needed. Add turmeric, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and mix thoroughly so flavors blend.

  3. Add lamb. Cook uncovered 5 minutes on medium to low flame. Add salt and 1 cup hot water and simmer, covered. If stew begins to dry, add water if needed, as it cooks. Add potatoes and 1/2 cup water. Cook another half an hour or until potatoes are tender.
