Hello friends
Welcome to ''my cuisine''. According to me cuisine or the culinary art is just that an art. The art of creating delicious foods with a conscience to health has various dimensions with which we can experiment and I have just started to experiment in my kitchen. There is nothing more heartwarming than a hot aroma filled food on a cold rainy day to cheer us up or nothing more satisfactory than satisfying the taste buds of our loved and dear ones.This was the reason i found my new love for cooking. Hope you would enjoy my various recipes......

Lamb chilli

This recipe is one of Nigella lawson's dishes. The only difference is that I have substituted minced lamb instead of the beef. This is a spicy stew made with the chillies and beans. Its basically a one pot dish. A very satisfying,  comforting and absolutely easy to make.
lamb chili with cornbread

  • Minced lamb - 250 gms
  • Red kidney beans - 200 gms(boiled)
  • Onions - 2 (diced)
  • Red bell peppers (capsicum) - 1 (diced)
  • Red chilli flakes - 2 or 3 tbsps 
  • Garlic - 2 (minced)
  • Cumin powder - 2 tsps
  • Corainder powder - 2 tsps
  • Tomatoes(medium) - 2(chopped)
  • Tomato puree - 2 tbsps
  • Tomato sauce - 2 tbsps
  • Salt - 1 tbsp
  • Oil - 2 tbsps
  • In heavy based pot add the oil, onions, diced pepper, minced garlic and saute well until they turn soft and transparent. Add chilli flakes, cumin and corainder powder. 
  • Add minced meat  mix well. 
  • Add all the three tomato ingredients (chopped, puree and the sauce), then the red kidney beans. 
  • Pour half a cup of water and add salt. 
  • Cover partially and let it simmer for about 2 hrs.
  • Serve hot in a bowl. 
In Nigella's recipe she would dollop the cornbread batter on top of the chili and bake it for half  hour. You can also bake the corn bread separately as I did and serve with the chili or with plain white rice or a meal on its own.
