RECIPE: Nyama Choma

I guess this is kind of like nyama choma--marinated and grilled meat, Kenyan style. Not really but whatever. I don't care.

3 cloves of garlic, grated
Small piece of ginger (half a thumb) of ginger, grated
1 tablespoon of curry powder
1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon of paprika
1/2 a teaspoon of ground pepper
Good pinch of salt
Juice of 1 lemon
Good splash of olive oil
Some chopped coriander (one of them. Leaves, roots, stem and all)
1kg of the meat of your choice (I used diced lamb)

Combine, cover and marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours.

If meat is diced, skewer it.

Cook the meat under the grill/on the bbq/over coals/etc/etc. Just get it as hot as it goes.

It's good. Have it with a really cold beer. Pale ale maybe.
