Gulai Kambing - Lamb "Stew"

Gulai Kambing
What's with the quotation marks on the "Stew"?
Because I didn't exactly stew the lamb ^_^'
I was not in the mood for any stewing, it's a weekday night! I need something quick and tasty.
Thus, I just quickly seared the lamb, finish them in the oven for a few minutes and serve them with gulai (Indonesian stew) "gravy" that I used to cook my potatoes. Lazy shortcuts as always.

"Recipe"
- Lamb cutlets (salt, pepper, ground corriander & cumin to season)
- 2 potatoes, cut into chunks, water
- 1 pack of Gulai seasoning (I used Indofood)
- Garnish/Optional: crispy shallot, kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce), chopped chilli, lemon/lime
Cook potatoes in a bit of water (do not use too much water) and gulai seasoning until the potato chunks reached the desired softness. Preheat oven to 250C. Heat up a frying pan, season lamb cutlets with salt, pepper, ground corriander, cumin, add with a bit of oil, sear each side, finish in the oven for a few minutes or until they reach the desired level of doneness. Serve lamb cutlets with the potatoes and the gulai "gravy", garnish and consume with lots of steamed rice.

I still miss the original slow cooked, stewed version, but this is better than no gulai kambing at all. And my new name should be Miss Compromise.

Yes, better than no gulai at all, and it turned out looking delicious.

Stewing on weeknights is overrated anyway. I love your quick fix for this lamb!
