This recipe is a good one for introducing spinach to children. They’ll get all the nutrients spinach has to offer without them knowing they eating it!

1kg lamb pieces (you may use with or deboned lamb pieces)
¼ cup cooking oil
2 large onions, peeled and chopped
2 tsps fresh grated ginger
2 tsps crushed garlic
1 – 2 tsps chilli powder (or to taste)
2 tsps salt (or to taste)
2 tsps garam masala
#capemalaycooking
500g fresh spinach, chopped
1 large red pepper, roughly chopped
3 green chillies, chopped (or to taste)
3 tbsp chopped fresh dhanya (coriander, cilantro)
1 ½ tbsp. lemon juice
1 lemon, cut into slices for garnishing
Water as needed

Heat the oil in a large heavy base saucepan / pot over medium heat. Add the onions and fry for about 10 minutes or until the onions are well browned. Add the lamb pieces, cook for about 5 minutes stirring frequently. Add the chilli powder, salt, garam masala, garlic and ginger. Stir to combine with the lamb.

Turn up the heat and pour in enough water to cover the meat and bring to the boil. As soon as it is boiling lower the heat. Cook over low to medium heat until the meat is tender about 30 – 35 minutes, depending on the type of meat. Stir often to prevent the meat from burning. Allow the water to cook away, the meat should be dry.

Add the chopped spinach and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, remove the lid to evaporate any excess water, the spinach will draw water so don’t be tempted to add more water.

Add the chopped red pepper, green chillies, cook for about 3 minutes. If you don’t like spicy food the green chillies can be omitted or you can serve the chillies in a separate plate and people can help themselves with extra chillies.

Dish the meat in a serving plate. Sprinkle with the lemon juice. Garnish with chopped dhanya and lemon slices. Serve immediately with white rice or naan.
