Cooking Method

To prepare pickled vegetables

Bring the saucepan to a high heat, add water, vinegar, sugar, salt, turmeric powder, bay leaves and coriander seeds to the saucepan and boil for three minutes. Leave it to simmer for 2 minutes. Put to one side to cool and place in the fridge for 20 minutes. Add carrots, cauliflower and the white radish and keep it in the fridge overnight.

To prepare Lamb Shanks

Prepare the bowl to marinate the lamb. Add the lamb shank, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, chilli, sea salt and beer and leave the lamb shank to marinate overnight. Once the lamb has marinated, preheat the oven to 150c. Cover the lamb shank with tin foil and cook for two hours or until the lamb becomes tender. Once the lamb is tender, remove the tin foil and cook for another five minutes to get a nice golden brown colour.

To prepare Mango dressing

Bring the saucepan to a medium heat and add tamarind concentrate, palm sugar and sugar. Bring it to boil and simmer for three minutes until sauce is thick. Take the dressing off the heat and let it cool. Add the mango, shallots, coriander, spring onions and chilli flakes into the sauce and sprinkle with roasted crush rice.

Put the Lamb shank on one side of the plate and place the pickled vegetables and mango dressing to on the other side of the plate. The dish is now ready to serve !
