Along with the 3 key ingredients which she has chosen consisting of lemon, coriander and thyme, she also added plethora of other ingredients – veggies, spices and herbs. Her advice is: to keep in mind when using so many ingredients is that balance is key – especially with spices.
They shouldn’t be overpowering because that can ruin the dish in one easy step (and I agree!) They should all work well together to create the ideal blend (Agree!) From fragrant coriander (cilantro) to succulent lamb to the bite of the chillies, this comes together beautifully! (Agree! Agree!Agree!) This meal contains many superfoods and superspices (yep, that’s a thing), so not only is it delicious, tasty and fragrant but ridiculously healthy too.
She couldn’t be more right! I love it that she used lamb for her dish, which, in my mind can be a little tricky to cook. Gen has rightly pointed out that I may have chosen chicken for the challenge, and she is right. Mainly because, we don’t do pork in our family so that’s out; but also because Silver Bullet does not eat seafood, which is a big bummer for me; hence why I always ever cook with nothing more than just beef and chicken.
Although, I can always make my husband go hungry. I mean, I love, love, love my fish and prawns and squids and it’s just a shame that I can’t cook them that often or I’ll end up cooking several types of dishes (for me and for him) and then OD-ing myself on seafood for a week!
But I digress.
Gen made a good remark that curry tend to taste better when you let it stand. This, I couldn’t agree more as we always find that curries do taste better the next day.
And yes, don’t forget those taters! Ever. Gen, has, definitely nailed the challenge as I would never have thought of using lemon and thyme to a curry dish. Well done, I’d say! Hmmm…I’m inspired to make Gen’s lamb curry soon!
I also learnt a new word: Saag = Spinach.
This has been so much fun. We were using quite similar ingredients and I wonder if we ever would one day come up with the same dish. Only time will tell. Meantime, if you every try those dishes from Monthly Mystery Munchies, don’t forget to let us know how it turned out for you, and if you can, post up your experience too.
