Indian Lamb Korma is my favourite Indian curry dish. Anyone who knows me knows this as I can’t seem to bring myself to order anything off a menu.

I will always try the other Indian dishes, but as much as they may be delicious, it’s the Korma that makes me crave Indian food.

I started eating lamb korma as a 7-year-old girl. I lived in Woolgoolga in NSW near Coffs Harbour. Woolgoolga has the largest Punjabi Sikh community in Australia.

When I was seven years old, the Arkin family built an Indian Restaurant, shaped like an Indian temple literally over the back fence.

They called it the Indian Temple Restaurant. From the day they opened the doors I was hooked on Indian food. The Arkin family had {about} eight children from age 5 through to 17.

My sister and I would spend the school holidays and weekends playing hide and seek in the large restaurant and kitchen with the girls.

By the afternoon the prep work would start in the kitchen, so we would be sent to play in the restaurant or bar area. Sometimes we were even allowed to watch the cooking.

It seemed completely magical the way the chapati was held over the flame. It would puff up like a balloon, and then settle down as a flatbread when removed from the heat.

The aroma of the curry spices would have me craving Indian food

Even back in those days, the aroma of the curry spices would have me craving Indian food.  I guess because I grew up with these particular recipes, I now judge all Indian dishes based on how they compare to the Indian Temple Curries.

I was able to revisit the flavours of my childhood when one of the Arkin sisters opened an Indian restaurant in Coffs Harbour. Embarrassingly I was a regular, like a real regular. At one stage I could smell the Indian spices aroma oozing out of the pores of my skin.

Sadly, although the restaurant is still in Coffs Harbour, it now has new owners, a new chef, and different recipes. Thankfully I have the one recipe I need, the lamb korma.
