Our attempt at lamb lollipops, curry sauce, rice and peas was a roaring success. Maybe not particularly neat, but still. This was the first time we actually managed to find all the ingredients called for. I should point out though that my dad is not very keen on chilli at all, so I never actually add in the amount required. I’ve been substituting in chilli flakes, just to give it at least a little bit of bite, but not enough to put him off. This is working out pretty well. I think we might have gotten away with a chilli in this recipe though – he was far too distracted by poppadoms to notice! It was a very tasty meal, and the curry sauce kept well enough for later use (with naan. Hmm, naan.)
Oh Lolli Lollipop – Cooking Adventure #3
I was so encouraged by our last effort that the very next day we tried out a third Jamie recipe. You can probably tell that my enthusiasm was gathering moment. Mum and I had gone on a grocery shop to gather all the spices on the recommended pantry list that we were lacking, and we were sitting down to work out future menus.
Score? 4 Grumpy Dads.
