OMG- This lamb dish is to die for!!!

So my friend Dr. Haque has a great lamb recipe which she has agreed to let us post on our blog. Being of the South Asian background, lamb and goat are definitely part of our dining experience. I hope you all give this one a try. Thanks for the contribution chicky!

Have the butcher cut a leg of lamb into two small pieces osso bucco style- 1.5 pounds
You will need:
grated carrots
fresh oregano
fresh basil
1 cup white wine
2 small baking potatoes
2 cans diced tomatoes italian style 12oz
dry rosemary
10 pieces fresh garlic cut into slivers or chunks
Place in bottom of slow cooker garlic, shallots. Rub all sides of lamb with rosemary and a little salt. Sear on highest heat top and bottom of lamb pieces on the stove- no more than 1 min per side. Add meat to slow cooker, Add herbs, generous garlic, grated carrots, potatoes whole or chunks, finish off with splashes of a white wine keeping the free liquid level to a minimum. Cover and cook for 6 hours on low. At this point you may add diced fresh eggplant if you wish. Cook the last two hours on warm. Let this cool and sit in fridge overnight. Serve warm the next day over rice or orzo pasta...absolutely divine.

I would love to eat this stuff. For at least an overnight meal, it would be quite a challenge for a first-time lamb cook.

If you ever make it to Udaipur in India, the lamb at the Oberoi Udaivillas is awesome as is the hotel.

Please let me know if you find any good desi type palette restaurants in Savannah/Pooler.

I've never been to India. As for Indian restaurants in Pooler... Yeah, I'd say just go to Jacksonville. The ones here are far from impressive.

For a guy that drove to Philly from Savannah for a chicken sandwich at my favorite deli up there, JAX doesn't seem to far fetched. Do you have any JAX recommendations?

Thanks Lulu.

JAX not yet, I'm planning on going down soon though.
