Mitzi’s Morrocan Lamb


I visited a friend in Perth recently and she took me to her friend Mitzi’s house where she had made the most amazing Morrocan Lamb curry with a lovely mixture of sweetness, heat and tender meat. Of course we both wanted the recipe afterwards and here it is. I cooked mine with rice (to suit my family) but Mitzi had done hers with couscous with fresh tomato and coriander and it was delish.

A rather yummy salad



Risini with roasted pumpkin, baked Philadelphia cheese, pine nuts, semi sundries tomatoes and spinach tossed through at the end. This was a recipe from the Philadelphia cheese recipe book but I added the toasted pine nuts and some Cajun prawns on the top. It got the big thumbs up from everyone!
