Description

Nothing’s better than a warming curry in the cooler months. My lamb curry with eggplant and yogurt sauce is just the dish to cozy up to.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ pound Boneless Lamb Shoulder, Cut Into 1-inch Chunks
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 whole Large Onions, Very Thinly Sliced
  • 2 teaspoons Finely Grated Ginger Paste (from 4x1 Inch Piece Fresh Ginger)
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Finely Grated On Microplane
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 1-½ teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Sweet Paprika
  • ¾ teaspoons Kashmiri Chili Powder (or More Paprika/cayenne Pepper, To Taste)
  • 1 piece Cinnamon Stick (1 1/2 Inch Long)
  • 3 whole Cloves
  • 1 whole Bay Leaf
  • 14 ounces, weight Canned Whole San Marzano Tomatoes
  • ¼ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 pound Eggplant (about 1 Large), Cut Into 1 Inch Cubes
  • 1 pinch Sugar (optional)
  • Chopped Fresh Cilantro, For Garnish
  • FOR THE YOGURT SAUCE:
  • 1 cup Whole Fat Plain Yogurt
  • 1 clove Garlic, Grated On Microplane
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • Salt To Taste
  • Lemon Zest, For Garnish
  • 1 dash Olive Oil

Preparation

Heat a Dutch oven or large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high to high heat. Pat lamb cubes dry and season generously with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons oil to preheated pot, followed by meat. Cook undisturbed until well-browned on first side. Flip and brown on remaining sides, about 12–15 minutes total. Remove lamb and set aside, reserving excess oil in pot.

Reduce heat to medium and add onions to pot. Season with salt. There should be enough oil to cook the onions, but add more, if needed. Continue to cook over low to medium heat for a total of 25–30 minutes or until soft and lightly caramelized.

Add ginger, garlic and all spices to pot. Toast in oil for about 30–60 seconds, being cautious to avoid browning the garlic. Add tomatoes and season with salt. Add back lamb. Stir in about 1 ½ cups water or enough to cover meat.

Bring curry to a simmer and cook over low to medium-low heat for about 2 to 2 ½ hours or until lamb is tender and sauce is flavorful. Add additional water while cooking, if needed, if sauce becomes too thin. Alternately, if sauce is too thin, simmer curry until it thickens to desired consistency.

Heat a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add ¼ cup of oil, followed by eggplant. Toss to combine. Do not salt immediately. Brown eggplant on all sides, then season generously with salt. Cook until well-browned and tender, adjusting heat as needed, for a total of about 12–15 minutes. Stir into curry after lamb is tender. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add a pinch of sugar to balance flavors, if desired.

Combine yogurt, garlic and lime juice in a bowl. Season with salt. Top with lemon zest and a drizzle of olive oil.

Distribute curry among serving bowls, top with cilantro and yogurt, and serve with warmed naan bread or rice, and lime wedges. Enjoy.

Incorrect. Nothing is better than treats and scritches during the winter months.
