Peter’s Lamb Curry (8)

This is from Jamie Oliver’s ” The Return of the Naked Chef”. He credits the recipe to his friend Peter Begg. You can vary the curry by using diced chicken, prawns or paneer or vegetables like swiss chard, spinach, peas, cauliflower, boiled potatoes or chickpeas. Serve with some Indian breads and/ or steamed basmati rice.

Souvlakia (2)

I can still remember eating my very first Souvlakia in the hot summer of 1976 on Syntagma Square in Athens. A cheap meal of spicy lamb in flatbread served in a paper cone, the juices dribbling down your clothes as you ate no matter how careful you were…This version is from Nigel Slater’s ” The 30 Minute Cook”.
