Traditional Easter Free-Range Lamb Stew with Roti



For the stew:

  • 1 kg L.A. FARMS Free-Range West Coast Lamb Stew / Curry pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 potatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 cups lamb or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

For the roti:


  1. Prepare the Stew:

    • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
    • Add the L.A. FARMS Free-Range Lamb stew pieces to the pot and brown on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.
    • Stir in the carrots, celery, and potatoes, and cook for another 5 minutes.
    • Add the tomato paste, lamb or vegetable broth, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
    • Bring the stew to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and let it simmer gently for 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the lamb is tender and the flavours have melded together.
    • Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
  2. Make the Roti:

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the centre and add the vegetable oil.
    • Gradually add warm water to the flour mixture, mixing with your hands until a soft, pliable dough forms. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
    • Divide the dough into small balls, about the size of golf balls.
    • Roll each ball out into a thin circle, about 6-8 inches in diameter.
    • Heat a non-stick skillet or tawa over medium heat. Place a roti on the skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
  3. Serve:

    • Serve the Traditional Easter Lamb Stew hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley, alongside warm roti.
