Lamb Head Curry with Coconut Milk

Standard

Usually I have heard that Lamb head curry goes out good only with onions and spices, but this time I have thought of preparing with coconut milk. So I have induced coconut milk with Lamb Head Curry, the curry was more delicious, it had a good flavor of mild sweetness and as usual the spiciness as also there. It’s been a big hit when my kids told it was delicious because usually they never like to have this lamb head curry. Let us move on to the recipe…

Today’s Special

Standard

Really today I am damn tired (^o^). From morning, I have been running for market, then cleaning home – this job is yet to finished, few more rooms yet to be done, evening visit by guests and then I got a little time to sit. Again started planning for the dinner. I love to cook, but the problem with me is selecting the menu – What to cook (choosing the main ingredient), How to cook (new recipe or familiar one or innovative recipe). Since being a weekend and whole family at home, started a discussion what to cook and how to cook. But finally as usually everyone skipped out from the question and I started breaking my head and opened the refrigerator to check out what I got in home. When I opened the freezer, I found at the Lamb head lying in a box, so finally decided to cook the lamb head with dosa. As the first step was over, I started hunting for a recipe. Atlast was not satisfied with any of the recipes and I started to do discover my very own recipe, also applied it to the dish and the dish came out very well. I loved to have that curry with dosa, since because of the mouth-watering taste, I had one more dosa than usually I have. So I am about to share the recipe with every one. Had a satisfied dinner, feeling sleepy (-_-)zzz, going to hit my bed.  Click Lamb Head curry/Aatu thala kuzhambu for recipe.
