Lamb Gulai (Gulai Kambing)

Saturday, March 8, 2008

I've still got some lamb meat inside the freezer, so today I made lamb gulai. I copied the recipe from with a little modification. It is good to eat while the weather is cold outside. Speaking bout the weather, I've really got sick of winter this year. It is March and we still have snow storm coming up. On the television, there is poll asking people: Will we have summer this year or we go directly into next winter? sound so desperate...

- 1kg lamb meat with bones
- 4 potato, peel off the skin and cut into small pieces
- 5 cloves of small red onion, chop thinly
- 1 lemon grass, cut into 4 cm in length
- 4 Indonesian bay leaves
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 5 clovers
- 1 tomato, cut into 8
- 1/2 can of coconut milk
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- salt
- oil for saute
- 1.5lt water
- fried onion

To crush:
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 15 chili paddy or bird's eye chili
- 5 candle nuts
- 3cm of galangal
- 2cm of turmeric
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

In a pot boil water and lamb meat-bones until tender. Discard the surface foam. In a pan, saute chopped onion for 2minutes. Add the crushed mix, lemon grass, bay leaves, cinnamon sticks and clovers into the pan, and stir it well for 4minutes.
Transfer it into the pot which has tender lamb meat and water inside. Add coconut milk and stir it while it is boiled. Add potato and continue to cook for 7minutes. Add tomato, salt and sugar to taste. Serve it with warm steam rice. Sprinkle some fried onion as preferred.
