Cumin-Turmeric Spice Blend
Salt and Pepper*
Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce.
Heat Guide for Step 5 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy!
Peel, then cut the carrot into 1/4-inch coins. Peel, then cut the sweet potato into 1/4-inch pieces. Toss the sweet potatoes and carrots with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast, in the middle of the oven, until tender-crisp, 10-12 min.
While the veggies roast, bring 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) to a boil in a covered medium pot. While the water comes to a boil, peel, then grate garlic. Peel, then grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Peel, then mince the shallot. Finely chop chili, removing seeds for less heat. (NOTE: We suggest using gloves when prepping chili!) Add rice to the pot of boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cook, still covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
While the rice cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then the lamb and shallots. Cook, breaking up lamb into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Season with salt and pepper.
Add the fennel seeds, ginger, garlic and Cumin-Turmeric Spice Blend to the large pan with the lamb. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 2-3 min.
Add the coconut milk, roasted veggies, 1/4 cup water (1/3 cup water for 4 ppl) and 1/4 tsp chilis to the pan with lamb mixture. (NOTE: Reference Heat Guide.) Cook, stirring often, until the curry has thickened slightly, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Roughly chop the cilantro. Fluff the rice with a fork, then stir in half the cilantro and season with salt. Divide the rice between plates, then top with the turmeric lamb curry. Sprinkle the remaining cilantro over top.
