Whilst baking cookies and tarts and granola bars has been exciting, I have to say it probably is time to observe some healthy eating over the course of the next few weeks. I gained only a baby bump when pregnant, and was back to my pre-pregnancy weight as soon as the bub was born. However, 4 months into maternity leave, the weight is threatening to pile on again.
Bill Granger’s Bills Basics has been my go-to cookbook the past few days. I had diced lamb in the freezer and wanted to make a light curry for dinner tonight. Bill’s Lamb and Yoghurt curry came to the rescue. When I tasted the curry prior to adding the yoghurt, it tasted a bit tart for my liking (I struggle with tomato-based sauces sometimes). I knew adding yoghurt would increase the tartness. Instead, I added some coconut milk (only 2 tbsp) which was more to my liking. I left out the sugar and lime juice as per the original recipe.
My, oh, my, what a lovely curry, served with brown basmati rice, and raita (fat-free yoghurt, diced cucumber, chopped coriander).
