Selection of meats available. Served with duck fat roasted potatoes, root vegetables, yorkshire pudding and homemade gravy

EATS & DRINKS

Easy Lamb Rogan Dhansak Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

• 800g diced leg of lamb or lamb steaks • 3 whole peppers, red, green, yellow, sliced. • 1 chopped and diced onion • 2 carrots peeled and finely diced • 2 sticks of celery chopped and finely diced • 2 jars of Rogan Josh sauce (recommend Loyd Grosman) • Half a teacup of dried red lentils • 2 – 4 whole red chillies sliced • Bunch of fresh coriander • Olive oil

Ready in 4 hours Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2. Add a splash of olive oil to a frying pan and cook the onions, carrot and celery until they take on a bit of colour, then put these into a large casserole pot. In the same pan put about half the diced lamb and fry until sealed, then put into casserole pot, repeat with the rest of the lamb. Fry the peppers for a couple of minutes, then put them into casserole pot with a pinch of salt and a good grind of pepper. Add the chillies to taste – 4 chillies will give a medium heat but use fewer chillies and remove the seeds if you don’t like it too hot. Pour in the two jars of Rogan Josh, then add a bit of water to the jars, put the lid back on and shake. Chop half the coriander and add to the pot with the liquid from the jars and stir thoroughly. You need the casserole pot filled to near the top, so add water if necessary. Don’t worry if it looks a bit watery, the lentils at the end will thicken it all up. Put into the oven, giving it a stir after about 2 hours. After 3.5 hours sprinkle over lentils and stir

• Salt and pepper • For serving, naan bread and sour cream

6 in. Put back into the oven for another 40 minutes.

Just before serving sprinkle the rest of the

7 fresh coriander on top and then serve with naan bread, and sour cream.

The Perfect Sunday Roast The GREAT British Sunday Roast: A tradition explained. The Sunday Roast is a traditional British main meal, consisting of roasted meat together with accompaniments. Other names for this meal are Sunday dinner, Sunday lunch, Roast dinner, and Sunday joint. The traditional Sunday roast has been traced back to its roots in Yorkshire, during the Industrial Revolution. It is believed this tradition arose because the meat could be left in the oven to cook before church on a Sunday morning, and it would be ready when the family arrived home at lunchtime. Typical meats used for a Sunday roast are beef, chicken, lamb or pork, although seasonally duck, goose, gammon, turkey or other game may be used. Recently, vegetarian alternatives such as Quorn or Nut Roast have also become available. These are some of the common traditional accompaniments to various meats (although many people combine different types of accompaniments, or mix and match foods): Roast Beef — served with Yorkshire pudding, horseradish mustard as relishes. In Yorkshire rings of fresh onion in vinegar are also served. In Scotland Neaps & Tatties are served (potatoes and turnips) and also Skirled, which is an oat based accompaniment. Roast Pork — served with crackling and sage and onion stuffing; apple sauce or baked apples and English Mustard as relishes. Roast Lamb - is traditional with mint sauce or redcurrant jelly. Although more recently the trend for garlic and rosemary has also become a staple. Roast Chicken - served with pigs in blankets (chipolata sausages wrapped in bacon), bread sauce and redcurrant jelly.

Roasts have been given many fresh and new make-overs by recent Chefs/ Cook books, but the basics are still the same. They are normally served with a range of boiled and roast seasonal and regional vegetables. The Sunday Roast is perhaps one of the last meals where this tradition survives. Also, we must not forget the gravy, made from stock, wine, vegetable waters and left over juices from the meat. Sometimes, the left-over meat was used to make Shepherd’s Pie (Lamb) or Cottage Pie (Beef), or if there are vegetables left, then a bubble and squeak with cold cuts, would make many a Monday night supper. Sunday Roast in pubs and restaurants Many pubs in Britain serving food have a special “Sunday menu” that features a Sunday Roast, usually with a variety of meats available, and this is often cheaper than the normal menu. We all have our memories of the perfect Sunday Lunch and our firm family favourites. So this Spring, whether it’s at home or in a local pub/restaurant, why not combine a good Sunday walk with a roast dinner, surely a great tradition to be enjoyed by adults and children
