Directions: (Curry Stew )
Preheat 4qt Roaster on medium heat. Saute diced up shallots until translucent and soft. Stir in minced garlic, ginger, whole clove, and use a little olive oil or ghee here for flavor. Cook for one minute until aromatic. Then, stir in madras curry powder, and 1/4 tsp each dried clove and thyme with a little broth or water to make into a paste. Let sizzle 1-2 minutes again until aromatic. Next, saute lamb stew meat in sizzling curry mixture for a few minutes. Once lamb has browned on the outside, stir in sweet potato, garbanzo beans, rest of broth, 1/2 small can tomato paste, rest of lamb marinade, and fresh pureed tomatoes. Lastly, add finely minced habanero pepper to taste for extra heat! Please note, for pepper flavor only without the heat, de-seed your habanero. Cover 4qt Roaster and keep burner on medium heat until thermal knob reaches 60 degrees, then turn burner to simmering low. Continue to simmer stew on low heat for 45 minutes or until lamb is soft and tender and potato is cooked through.
Voila! Serve hot with dumplings and basmati rice.
