Preparation steps

1.

Season the lamb with salt and ground black pepper. Brown on all sides in a casserole dish in 1 tbsp of hot oil.

Remove from the dish and fry the onion, garlic, and ginger in the remaining oil. Stir in the curry powder and cook briefly. Add the squash and potato pieces and deglaze with the stock and coconut milk.

2.

Remove the outer leaves from the lemon grass. Finely chop a little of the white part and set aside for garnish. Crush the rest of the stalk (ideally using a meat tenderiser) and add to the pan.

Return the meat to the pan, cover and braise over low heat for around 2 hours, turning the lamb regularly. Add more stock if required.

Add the tomatoes for the last 15 minutes of cooking time.

3.

Before serving, season to taste with a dash of lime juice, salt, and ground black pepper. Remove the lemongrass and arrange the lamb and vegetables on plates.

Serve garnished with the chopped lemongrass and coriander.
