Marinated Lamb Popsicles With Fenugreek Cream Curry created by PetsRus
Ready In:
15-20 Lamb Popsicles




  • Cut the racks of lamb into the'popsicles' by slicing the chops in between the bones.
  • Mix the white wine, mustard and salt together in a large bowl, then add the popsicles, turning to coat them on all sides.
  • Cover and set aside in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the whipping cream, salt, paprika, cayenne, fenugreek flakes and lemon juice.
  • In a medium-sized, heavy pot, sauté the crushed garlic in the canola oil.
  • Once the garlic is golden in colour, add the turmeric, stir and heat for one minute.
  • Add the whipping cream mixture, stir and heat on low to medium heat for a few minutes.
  • (the water in the whipping cream will evaporate, thickening the sauce. If your heat is too high, the cream will separate.) If making the sauce a day ahead, let the garlic mixture cool completely, then add to the cream mixture and refrigerate.
  • Thicken the sauce close to serving time by heating gently.
  • Grill the popsicles just before you are ready to serve your meal.
  • You can either pour the cream curry over the grilled popsicles or use it as a dipping curry for them.

    I had this dish at Vij's restaurant and IT WAS SO GOOD IT MADE ME CRY! Everyone should try this once before they die!!

    This was very yummy and relatively easy to make. I used baby lamb french cut chops (more tender) and reduced the amount of the whipping cream a bit (2/3 L). Used the sauce as a dipping sauce and there was plenty of sauce to use. The kasuri methi complements the lamb very well - DH & guests enjoyed this very much!

    I haven't yet made this recipe but we eat at Vij's each time we are in Vancouver and this is our favourite dish - and I am not a huge lamb person! If this is the recipe that they use, try it, try it, try it! Everyone will be blown away and fight over the last few. Would also be great for a cocktail party - very impressive!


Hello, my name is Bonnie and I am a very beautiful cat as you can see if you look at the picture at the top of this page.... What??.. I am supposed to talk about you??? But it says here: About Me!! Well all right then ...... My mom is Dutch and has moved to England in October 2007, after living 15 years in the Netherlands with my English dad. They don’t have any human children and “created” their own family, which means I have to share them with Hannah, she is a 6 years old tortie cat, Abby the dog, she is a 9 year old Beagle, and a one year old black Miniature Pincher named Poppy, I refuse to tell you my age but I am a georgious lilac British Shorthair cat!! It is obvious she adores pets just by looking at her name she uses on Zaar (many on Zaar call her Pets or Petsie Poo), her name in real life is Annelies and that is a common Dutch name. My mom always liked to cook, but since she joined Zaar it got out of control, and it doesn’t help that she is disorganized. Printed recipes everywhere in the house, the recipe binders have got bigger and just between you and me, her hips too!!! I have lived in Holland all of my life until now, but they lived in several different countries/places:- desert and coastal Oman, up North and West in Holland, Vancouver-Canada, Aberdeen- Scotland and in Norway they lived in Bergen and Oslo. We have all moved together to England, as you can see I’ve already learnt the language! I heard her say to Dad that this is the last time she moved to another country...she's had it with moving from one place to another! ( its her age...she's getting grumpy) Mom is 55 years old but I always hear her say that the date of her birthday does not mean that much to her, the date of her cancer anniversary is more important, because so far she is a survivor. Besides cooking she has other interests too, crafts, gardening and soap making. She likes Zaar and is one of the hosts on the German-Benelux Forum here on RecipeZaar. She would like to thank everybody who tries and comments on the recipes she has posted on Recipezaar, your feedback is very much appreciated. <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>
