Ben requested me to make a dish from Vij’s which he enjoyed a lot. It is the Marinated Lamb Popsicles with Fenugreek Cream Curry. It’s easy to source the recipe as a search for it returned many links to the recipe. I got this recipe from http://cookingresources.suite101.com.
The first thing Ben commented was that it did not look like popsicle. Well, I did not trim off the meat from the bones as they are nice for chewing. Anyway, none of my boys like it because they dont like meat with bones and they do not like the sourish cream curry.
I also had problem finding the lamb rack. It took me 3 hours to look for the lamb rack after visiting 7 stores. The 1.8 lbs of lamb rack costs $22. I halve the recipe as it’s way too much for my family of 4. Even that, I find that the recipe for the cream curry is way too much as there is a lot of left over. Half of the recipe will be more than enough.
This recipe yields 30 medium size popsicles for 6 people. The number of popsicles per person depends on the size of the rack of lamb. For larger popsicles, four per person is usually enough.
