Just Mad's Tandoori Lamb Recipe

I don't know what to say about this meal: I have prepared, cooked and demolished it and I'm lost for words as to how good the finished product was. As you know, I'm very passionate about my curries and I have been cooking Indian recipes on and off for at least 3 years. I have never had a meal turn out like this, especially considering that it was my own recipe. Everything worked: from the tenderness and moistness of the lamb to the subtle mix of the marinade and the slight kick of the chilli. Everything went right: you could even taste a smidgen of the lime that was added at the start. I have to say that this was the perfect Indian meal and I don't think I can top it. I don't say this about many of my meals, but anyone that follows me must have ago at this recipe, as it's a waste if I just kept it for myself. I am posting this recipe exactly how I cooked it. If you follow my blog, then you will know that this is in two parts. For those of you that don't know then the marinade part of this recipe is in my previous post. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this meal as much as we did.
This meal will serve 2 people, if not 3.

What you need:
780g of the marinated lamb

What to do:
If you are using a Tandoori pot, then you will need to soak it in cold water for at least 20 minutes. Add the marinated lamb to the tandoori pot, put into the oven and turn the oven up to 230c fan/425f/gas 8, now set the timer for an hour. After an hour take the lid off the tandoori pot and cook for a further 20 minutes. Now the lamb is ready. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve with a rice of your choice . I have a few different ways to prepare rice, which I will post over the next few months. For this particular dish, I used a simple coriander rice.
As you can see, once you are done with the hard part of marinating the lamb, this meal becomes very simple indeed. I just hope that my boast at the start of this recipe lives up to your expectations and that you get just as much enjoyment out of this meal as my girlfriend and I did.

Happy Cooking and Enjoy!
