The best way to make 2017 a special year? Dine on the food of royalty, of course. Laal Mass is a dish that traditionally has been served in the region of Rajasthan as the perfect royal curry. It was commonly made with mutton or game meat – at Spice Lounge we use lamb – and involved heavy use of red chilli in order to help enhance the flavour of the meat.
The spicy tones of this dish have remained, creating a hot dish with added yoghurt to help mellow out the most intense heat of the Laal. It is a famous dish in India, but a little less known here in the UK so perfect for your curry adventure!
