Paya / Lamb Trotters in a spicy sauce

Recipe in the Book
I have had lots of people asking me for this recipe.  It is usually eaten for breakfast and is supposed to be full of nourishing goodness.  

Ingredients
8 lamb trotters; ask the butcher to cut them into 2 pieces
juice of 1 lemon
4-5 cloves of garlic; minced
2-3 inch piece of ginger; grated
2-3 green chillies; very finely chopped
2 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 large onion; finely chopped
1 400g can of tomatoes; liquidised
2 teaspoons coriander and cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon garam masala



Method
1.  Clean the trotters throughly, make sure you remove all the short hairs. Marinate in lemon juice, garlic, ginger and chillies for 30 minutes
2. Place them in pressure cooker with 2 cups of water and bring to boil, cook for at least an hour.
3. Heat the oil in a saucepan large enough to fit the paya / trotters and fry the onions until dark brown.
4. Add the tomatoes, stir and cook at low heat for about 10 minutes
5. Add the coriander, cumin, turmeric  powders and salt, mix well and cook for 5 minutes.
6. Add the trotter and enough of the liquid to cover the bones, bring to boil and simmer for a further 30 minutes. Add the garam masala and mix.
7. Serve with paratha or nan bread

You funny! My pressure cooker and ceiling are fine. You must have a dodgy pressure cooker.
