This started off as a way to use up the remains of our Easter Sunday roast lamb.
The problem was, the lamb on its own wouldn’t be enough to build a meal around.
A tricky little conundrum, and no mistake.
I’d gone without a chilli hit for three straight days, the result of having a spice-hating guest to stay, combined with a lack of enthusiasm on my part for cooking multiple meals on the same evening, just to satisfy my craving for heat.
Now, with my obligations as a host fulfilled, it was time to give my mouth and all digestive systems due South thereof a good, old fashioned, capsaicin based workout once again.
Valentines Day, eh?
The Bard of Avon once asked if music was the food of love.
No, it isn’t, Bill. Stop being silly.
Food is the food of love. The clue is in the name.
We thought we’d seen off the worst of winter, but it looks as though it has other ideas.
It hardly seems fair. Just as we were getting used to longer days, milder temperatures, and the odd spot of sunshine, Winter has to go and sucker-punch us, launching a sneak attack, dumping a thick coating of what my pa-in-law used to refer to as “that hateful white stuff” on our pavements and bike paths.
I needed a curry, badly.
More specifically, I needed chillies, because I’ve found that in this life, one thing counts, bird’s eye chillies, large amounts.
This dish is a great winter warmer – hearty, spicy, and meaty, and with a certain smokiness from the grilled aubergine and Spanish paprika, so that you could almost imagine yourself eating it around a desert camp-fire.
It needs nothing more than a simple side dish of steamed cauliflower, and a lovely big pot of mint tea.
I know, I know….another Chinese soup…
Look, I really wasn’t going to post this.
It came about due to a not-very-frequent alignment of the culinary planets, a weird set of circumstances that 9 times out of 10 would result in an abomination that even the dog would turn his snout up at.
