    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring the fish stock to the boil in a large saucepan, add lobster bodies and tail fans and boil for 6 minutes (no longer or you will overcook the legs). Remove from the pot. Pull off legs and claws, cover and set aside with the tail fans (they will later decorate the completed dish). Strain and retain the stock for the sauce.
    2. 2
      Heat a little oil in a large saucepan and lightly cover the lobster tail pieces for about 1 minute. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Lightly brown the onions and garlic in the same pot (add extra oil if necessary), then add the chilli, curry leaves, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cardamom, and cinnamon. Sizzle the spices for about 30 seconds, then add the chopped tomato, lemon juice, stock and a little salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Just before serving return the lobster to the sauce and simmer for 2-3 minutes until cooked. Add the yogurt and heat through. Tip into a warm bowl, or serve directly from the pan. Garnish with the reserved tail fans and legs.

      Absolutely top-notch! A dish made for a Queen! The aromatics of cooking this sauce is really enough to send you over the next rainbow, it's spot on ~ and I confess to taking a small teaspoon and tasting, by the end of the recipe, I had like 14 teaspoons from, "trying". Anyway, I didn't change one thing about this, other then serving the lobster tail whole, with the sauce drenched over top. This to me, it the finest recipe of tour. Thanks, Kimmie! ZWT 7

      This was positively delicious. The spices are so traditionally African and really came together for a wonderful meal that made me feel like we were dining in fine style. I used only lobster tails and used fresh, chopped tomatoes (no blanching). But otherwise, I followed the recipe as written, and it was DELICIOUS. Thanks, KimmieCat. Made for ZWT7 for Mischief Makers team.
