Recipe - Lamby Goodness

I guess my first post really should tell a bit about me and the reasons behind this blog. However, I'll need some time to put that together so I thought I'd post a favourite recipe instead.

This is one of my own inventions. For once I haven't stolen someones recipe straight off or with modifications. This is a recipe I created for a friend and she keeps asking me to cook this for her. Which can get a bit boring when you want to try new dishes at times ;-)

I'm afraid that I don't have a photo of this dish, I'll try to add photos with all my future postings.

Well, here's the recipe....

Lamby Goodness (serves 2 - 4 depending on how hungry you are)

500g lamb mince
2 red onions, chopped
Garlic, to your taste and finely chopped
1 tablespoon Olive oil
2 tablespoons curry powder, or more if you want a stronger curry flavour
1 200 ml tub Crème Fraîche
1 200 g can Sweet Corn
Salt and pepper to taste
Pitta pockets

Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onions and the garlic and let them sweat until they start to soften. At this stage add the mince together with salt and pepper to taste. Let the mince fry until it's nicely browned. Now add the Crème Fraîche, curry powder and Sweet Corn. Bring to the boil and then adjust it to a simmer. Let this simmer for about 10 - 15 minutes, until the mixture is starting to thicken.

Serve in the pitta pockets. It's always nice to grill the pitta pockets slightly just before serving.
