Spring Roast Lamb with Saffron Fondant Potatoes

Rated 5/5 from 1 Customer Review

An indulgent Persian twist on a springtime roast...

The food of Persia is highly regarded as one of the world’s most opulent cuisines, making our Persian version of a Sunday roast the perfect meal to impress friends and family this spring. The lamb is roasted here with a mild, fragrant spice crust then served with a fesenjan gravy, enriched with walnuts and flavoured with advieh, the Persian version of garam masala which contains cinnamon, green cardamom, cumin, nutmeg and rose.

On the side we’ve got some buttery saffron fondant potatoes, a root vegetable khoresht, a vibrant salad and mint yogurt in place of traditional mint sauce!

Amazing way of cooking the lamb, the saffron potatoes were rich and buttery. But the side dishes here were the winners, toasted walnuts in the salad were a touch of genius in my opinion. Thank you for a lovely alternative Easter Sunday meal!
