Eggsquisite Giant Lamb Keema Roll
Another twist on tradition… my Indian lamb keema wrapped around some beautiful @clarence_court eggs encased in a crisp, flaky puff pastry… scrumptious!!
LEVEL UP YOUR SPICE GAME… 100% natural… does it make a difference? Yes, it really does! Supermarket spices have rubbish in them to keep their shelf life longer which compromises taste as well as health.
Raman Spice @ramanspiceuk uses family recipes that dates back to the 1960’s… keeping it natural, taste and flavour is everything… their family story is heart warming!
We all need a delicious reminder sometimes that the world needs more love right??
Here it is… a family’s love for their spice blends, passed on through generations… It all began with a wholesale natural spice mill in Malaysia founded by “Mr.Raman” back in the ‘60’s which went dormant for nearly 40 years until recently when his eldest daughter, Mrs.Lakshmi along with her 4 children, decided it was time to continue her father's great legacy. With Mrs.Lakshmi being the pillar of support and the inspiration behind each recipe, the Raman Spice legacy still lives on through its ground spices and blends. ♥️
- Blitz the spring onions, fresh coriander, mint and green chilli in the food processor, set aside
- Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and sauté until soft but not browned
- Add ginger and garlic, bay leaves, chilli powder, ground cinnamon, turmeric and garam masala, cook for a further 2 minutes, add ground coriander and continue to cook for 2 minutes
- Add the yogurt and sauté for another couple of minutes until the yogurt starts to separate
- Add the blitzed paste, turn the heat to a simmer and cook for another 10-15 minutes
- Add the lamb and salt, mix well and continue to cook for a few more minutes
- Turn off the heat and leave to cool, add 1 beaten egg and mix into the mince
- Pre-heat oven 180°C
- On a large piece of parchment paper flatten out the sausage meat to make a rectangle of 25cm x 35cm
- Lay 6 eggs evenly across the wider bottom section leaving about 2 inches from the bottom, roll up the parchment paper slowly, tucking in the closer end of the roll to start a roll and press rhythm lightly with both hands until you have a perfectly rolled log shape
- Keep wrapped in the parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes
- On a large piece of parchment paper join the pastry sheets together to make a rectangle 35cm x 45cm
- Place the roll in the middle section of the pastry
- Cut 1” thick slices on diagonal from mince to the end of the pastry, brush the strips with beaten egg
- Trim the ends off the pastry and then fold each strip of pastry alternatively over each other to give a twist effect
- Brush the top with the other beaten egg, sprinkle on the sesame seeds
- Remove the roll with the parchment paper still underneath onto a wired oven rack with tray and poke holes in the bottom of the parchment paper so any excess oil can drip into the oven tray
- Bake in the oven for 45 minutes until the pastry is cooked through and golden
- Slice and enjoy hot with a drizzle of chilli sauce or your favourite chutney!
