EASY MALAYSIAN LAMB CURRY

Curry is one of my favourite home cook dish. Me and my husband enjoy curry to an extent that we could eat it everyday without getting bored! This could be an influence by our culture background and country of origin, Malaysia.

Malaysia, a multicultural country is one of the popular spice producer among Southeast Asia. There are 3 major ethic groups in Malaysia (Malay, Chinese and Indian) and each group have their own culinary traditions. It is known as a food paradise with it wide range of cuisines. There are a mixture of flavours among these cuisines. A great example of fusion cuisine is Nyonya food, a mix of Malay and Chinese food ingredients which incorporate a lot of spices and herbs in cooking. My type of food that I grew up with!

Today, I’m going to share with you my lamb and potato curry recipe that I have been making many times for my family. This lamb curry recipe is using the popular Malaysia Baba’s meat curry powder with incorporation of the others two important ingredients in Nyonya cooking, coconut milk and spices.

This curry recipe is pack with beautiful aromatic flavour, delicately spiced and super appetising. To serve the curry, you can either pair it with rice or roti canai which is flatbread. I served the lamb curry with NASI KUNING (yellow rice or turmeric rice). If you are not a lamb fan, you can swap it with chicken or beef. Baba’s curry powder can be found from most Asian grocery stores.
