    I am planning ahead for Easter and trying to find some dishes that I can cook for visitors, but that I will also be able to enjoy. I will have gone fully low carb by then.

    So, is this lamb pasanda ok for low carb? It's obviously a very high fat dish, but seems to me that it should be ok? I obviously won't eat tons of it.

    What do you all think?

    Lamb Pasanda Ingredients
    1 1/2 oz Ghee or unsalted butter
    6 oz onions peeled and chopped
    1lb lean lamb cubed
    2 cloves of garlic
    1 inch piece of ginger grated
    150ml natural yoghurt
    ½ tsp turmeric
    2 tsp coriander
    1 tsp cumin
    ½ tsp ground nutmeg
    1 large pinch cayenne
    200ml water
    150 ml single cream
    1oz ground almonds
    ½ tsp salt
    1 tsp garam masala
    Toasted blanched almonds

    Instructions for Lamb Pasanda
    Melt the butter in a large frying pan and fry the onions until just beginning to brown. Add the lamb and cook until browned. Add the garlic, ginger, yoghurt, Turmeric, Coriander, Cumin, Nutmeg, Cayenne Pepper and water and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until the meat is tender. Stir in the cream, almonds, salt and Garam Masala. Heat through gently and serve garnished with the toasted almonds.

    Looks Ok to me - there will be carbs in the onions, almonds and yoghurt but if it's split amongst 4-6 people you shouldn't end up with too many. Might try this one myself. I cook a lot of curries from scratch - love them! Done almost everything in my Madhur Jaffrey book, great for dinner parties as you can do them in advance and they taste even better.

    Thanks IB. This looks like a good one I thought. Let me know how it goes if you make it, as I won't be doing it until Easter. :D
