What is Lamb Madras?
Lamb Madras is a Southern Indian curry that features meat, typically mutton, lamb or goat, cooked in a special Madras spice blend alongside other spices, coconut, tamarind and sometimes tomato.
The curry was given its name from the city of Madras, the Colonial name given by the British to the city of Chennai.
Often the dish features lots of fresh chillies and curry leaves, typical of Southern India. This also means the sauce can range from mild to fiery, depending on how many hot fresh chillies are added.
It's a dish cooked over a long time to ensure the tough meat has time to soften and transform into butter-soft morsels.
