When it comes to holidays – Easter is top tier. You get to spend the weekend bingeing on meaty treats, sugary goodies, and whatever else you may have given up for the month! Bring this easter in by throwing a lavish-meaty lunch. Whip out the wine glasses, get your cameras ready to capture these precious moments, and get ready to eat your weight in food!
Anglo-Indian recipes are the result of the fusion between Indian and Western Cuisines. A gastronomical legacy, at the least, these recipes take inspiration from dishes made by early settlers. This Easter try something new by cooking up an Anglo-Indian inspired Easter Feast!
Here are some of our favourite recipes to get you started!
Mutton Kofta Curry
Inspired by early Dutch settlers this recipe uses perfectly ground Goat Keema that is fresh and fat trimmed. Balls are formed with the keema and then simmered in a deep brown, spice-infused and flavorful curry.
To begin, mix spice powder, green chillis, and coriander leaves with the mutton mince. Then mold into small balls.
Heat oil in a large pan and fry onions till golden brown.
Add ginger- garlic paste, and curry leaves and let it fry for a few more minutes.
Then add chilli powder, spice powder, turmeric powder, and coconut paste and fry till the oil separates from the mixture.
Add tomato paste, salt and half cup water and let the mixture simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Then add the Kofta balls one by one and leave to simmer for another 20 minutes.
Lastly, garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with coconut rice.
This mildly favoured rice is a perfect accompaniment to the flavourful Kofta Curry. Made from freshly grated coconut this aromatic rice is easy to make and perfect when hosting large gatherings of friends and family
