Hi there i hope you like this recipe, my mother is from calcutter and this is the nice easy version of our family curry. you dont have to grind any spices your self, and you can get all this stuff from local indian shops and even some tesco's.

i have simplified it as much as possible and put in a link for some of the ingriedients:

http://www.theasianc...-tin-1820-p.asp

the key is only to you "proper" spices imported from india, but the main one is the curry powder as i just wont taste the same unless you have that particular brand.

hope you enjoy, i also am working on a home made pilau rice recipe - but its a pain in the arse with 3 different cooking process! involving frying, boiling and baking! but it is worth it.

Basic Rabbit Curry (Simplified Version – Believe it or not!)

For about 6 People

Rabbit legs and saddle enough for 6 people
1 cup oil (Veg or Olive)
2 Large Onions
6 Cloves
6 Cardamoms
2-3 medium pieces of cinnamon bark (Or powdered cinnamon)
Fresh coriander (Optional)
2 tsp (tea spoon) Ginger (can be bought pre-blended in jars)
4 cloves Garlic (can be bought pre-blended in jars)
1 ½ tin chopped tomatoes
2 tsp sugar (Optional)
1-2 tsp Salt
3 Over heaped desert spoon Curry powder BOLST’S
1 desert sp powdered coriander seeds (Indian name is Dhanya)
1 desert sp powdered cumin seeds. (Indian name is Jeera)
2 tsp Garam masala (Optional)

Preparation
Joint the rabbit as you see fit
Chop onion some fine and some course
Chop coriander - fine
Grate Ginger & Garlic

Method
Heat the oil (Heat till it smokes a little if using olive oil, has funny flavour if not)
Fry onion till golden brown
Lightly fry Cloves, Cardamoms (Pop open cardamoms), medium pieces of cinnamon bark (Or powdered cinnamon)
Add Curry powder & Guram masala, then powdered coriander & powdered cumin. Fry really well until brown but do not burn the paste.
Lightly fry ginger and garlic

Add the Rabbit and stir fry for about 10 minsmaking sure the past has coated all the meat.
You can leave it to marinate for a while at this point.
Cover pan and simmer slowly till the juices come out of the meat
Add the chopped tomatoes, Chopped Fresh coriander, sugar, Salt. Occasionally stirring gently until meat is cooked on a very low heat until the rabbit is tender (could be up to 3 hours if old rabbits)


Remember to tell your guests not to eat Cloves, Cardamoms & cinnamon bark… I try to pick out as much as I can before serving.

Enjoy with lots of beer or white wine !!!
