Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms. Is it only in South Africa? So today we had a really scrumptious meal. Long and slow lamb shank, butter chicken, chick pea and spinach curry, avocado yoghurt, beetroot sauce, butter naan and red onion and tomato raita. This was served with an amazing 2015 Viognier from the wine estate Saronsberg in Tulbagh. Western Cape, South Africa.

@harighotra now that Viognier was off the charts in terms of flavour. It was however a 2015. Currently We can only get the latest vintage so the next time I get that wine it will unfortunately be a 2019 or a 2020. The perfect wine for a curry.

@harighotra The shank was soft and just melted in your mouth. I did however braise it in the oven for 3 hrs at 140 degrees celcius. I then made the masala and added it to the cooked shank for 30 min. By me doing it this way, I felt I lost some of the moisture of the masala or I didn’t make enough masala, resulting in the lamb lacking some real punchy Indian flavours. But still a delicious meal, just look at my plate in the second photo.

Look at all those colours! Never drunk a Viognier from S. Africa. Love the french ones though.
Mothers Day is in March in the UK . Today in Italy.

Looks very tasty and colourful. The wine is a great accompaniment. Mothers day in UK was in March. No idea why the dates are different.
