Gulai / Kare Kambing Berempah / Indonesian style Spiced Lamb Curry

First I'd like to say Happy Eid al Adha (feast of sacrifice) for all muslim readers. Bayramınız Mubarek Olsun.

Muslim’s today sacrifice a sheep or a goat, the meat of which is shared among friends, family, and the poor, with each receiving a third. People sacrifice animals but are required to make arrangements to ensure it is slaughtered humanely.
The Greater Eid also marks the end of Hajj, the five-day religious journey that takes Muslims to the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

This year 2014 we celebrate Eid al Adha at Friday 3rd October. Eid al Adha is one of religious holiday that Muslims celebrate each year beside Eid al Fitr. For you who wants to know more about our Eid al Adha you can visit this page to have more knowledge.

Elhamdulillah, this year my husband's family sacrifice few goats. Beside we shared to whom in need, we also get some part of it. Unlike years before, this time I didn't make satay as my "a must food" in every sacrifice feast. But this food also mostly make and served during sacrifice feast in Indonesia together with satay. You can check my lamb satay recipe here.

For some Indonesian friends who visited us I made this Spiced Lamb Curry. If you search on google about this "gulai" you might find many kind of different recipe of it. Yes we have many kind of "gulai" some of them are in yellow colored and some of "gulai" have different spices and taste depends on local area. What I made here is spiced gulai cause I use some spices which is dry fried/ toasted (without oil) then grinded into fine powder. This recipe actually I copied from my mom. And as home "chef" she couldn't mentioned about how much exactly the ingredients being used.. She just said this A"about this much" or that B"more or less" bla..bla.bla..  So I must try to measure it by my self and adjust the taste exactly like my mom made :)
