    The Official Food/Cooking/Eating thread

    So I think it's time for this.

    There are some awesome food related threads going atm and it's not my intention for this one detract from them. But they are are all very specific and I reckon we need a more general one, for eg the Shite cooking thread has been pretty much filled up with great cooking stories etc.

    I'll kick this off with the hope that one of our Indian members can help me out. Some time ago....possibly 18 months or so, there was some talk in a thread about some lamb dish (whole leg, BBQ'd I think) that you were all raving about as the best thing ever. What was it?? And can anyone link me to a good recipe as I want to try it.

    Also, despite all the bigging up of sub continental food at the expense of our delicious English cuisine recently, I must confess to absolutely loving Indian food. In the absence of any decent local restaurants I decided I'd better learn to cook the **** myself which I have done with varying degrees of success. I have even gone as far as making my own tandoori oven (courtesy of a Jamie Oliver idea)

    10/10 for Adders. Moving on from that Potato and gravy nonsense to some real food.

    I know the dish you are referring to but the name escapes me atm.

    Boom; found it:
    BBC Food - Recipes - Marinated roast leg of lamb (raan) served with seasoned yoghurt (tadka raita)

    IDK how authentic the BBC recipe is, and I've never had the real thing, but I hear it's heavenly and I do intend on trying it someday

    Hahaha. The irony of you posting a BBC recipe for this is pure gold!!

    Cheers though, that sounds like the one.......think I will try and find an Indian recipe for it though.

    I would have posted one from an Indian site, but figured the BBC one was catered to your weak western genetics

    I've got a few questions:

    1) What's the deal with HP Brown sauce? I saw it everywhere when I was in London and it sorta tastes like bbq sauce and just isn't that great imo.

    2) This is for my Indian friends as well - why the **** have you guys not been introduced to Chilli sauce (sweet chilli, normal, garlic etc)? It will change your life and ensure you never dip anything in ketchup again.

    3) What is 'gravy'? Is it the same gravy found on mashed potatoes?

    Yeee. Agree with this.

    My family makes our own chili sauce. Mix it with some soya sauce for dumplings and stuff; use it on it's own for indian snacks, maybe mixed with some ketchup for sweetness. It's great. My dad literally gave away the recipe to this one desi-chinese restaurant in Dubai once upon a time.

    I only use HP sauce on steak if someone overcooked it. Dunno about England, though.

    There's a stall in the cafeteria that sells cut up fruit in a cup. Kiwi, Watermelon, Apple, Dragonfruit and Orange. I usually get one of those or a few slices of Guava post lunch. Can't really go wrong with fruit, they're pretty amazing. Well besides Durian anyways.

    So I've had a bit of a google and found a few recipes that appear to be authentic, I'm surprised that they are all cooked in a conventional oven though?? It looks like a dish that would be much better cooked over some hot coals??

    Can anyone confirm if lamb raan is generally BBQ'd or cooked in an oven?

    Down south in my state, its pretty much any liquid that's in a dish when the meat/vegetables are cooked. Mix it with rice, dip roti/naan in it, etc.

    Look, man. Indian dishes are complicated to make. Thats why you will find that most people who live alone eat bread and ramen in the city and rarely choose to cook. The last time I got together for a weekend with my cousins, we tried to make it and followed this recipe:

    How to make Shaan E Raan, recipe by MasterChef Sanjeev Kapoor

    Takes forever.
