It's thursday today, which means I'am out of almost every 'important' ingredient - tomatoes, carrots, beans, garlic, fish etc. I did have some lamb and I have never cooked a lamb dish without tomatoes - atleast I don't remember cooking one.
I had no choice but to get creative. So this is what I did. I took my trusty pressure cooker out. Sauted a couple of red onions in vegetable oil for few minutes. Added maybe a tsp of chopped ginger, a green chilli, few curry leaves. Sprinkled some salt, garam masala and ground black pepper. Then I added maybe a tsp or two of red chilli powder. Poured some water in for the powdered spices to cook. Cooked for few minutes. Added the lamb pieces - half a kilo (Indian mutton to be precise).
I know the photos don't do justice to the dish here. Trust me, the onions were beautifully caramalized and the tender pieces of lamb were heaven!
