Lamb Rendang – Woolworths Taste – July 2015

 

Recipe from : Woolworths Taste – July 2015

Last month I made a “Save With Jamie” Beef Brisket Rendang, and it was (sadly) terrible.  I really couldn’t eat it.  Rendang is supposed to be a really flavoursome, rich and delicious curry.  This month, I spotted Lamb Rendang in the Taste magazine and noticed a much richer spice combination in the ingredients list.  Seeing that Tamarind features in this dish, I decided I had to give this one last attempt.

This was phenomenal; rich, flavoursome, complex, all the good things you read that a Rendang should be.  Jamie Oliver eat your heart out!  I know he is campaigning against sugar right now, but even if you entirely leave it out, this would still be phenomenal.
