Twelve-hour Indian-spiced lamb shoulder with saffron pilaf

As the name indicates, this dish requires planning ahead. That said, the long cooking time is offset by simple preparation, with melt-in-the-mouth textures and deep flavours the pay-offs. Start this recipe two days ahead to marinate and roast the lamb.

Malloreddus with pork sausage and radicchio


You'll need

50 ml olive oil 2 onions, finely chopped 2 rosemary sprigs, leaves finely chopped 8 coarse pork sausages (about 500gm) 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 150 ml dry white wine 1.2 kg canned whole peeled tomatoes, crushed 250 gm cherry tomatoes (about 1 punnet) 2 heads radicchio, outer green leaves discarded, inner leaves torn ½ cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley 50 gm finely grated pecorino, plus extra, shaved, to serve   Pasta dough 250 gm fine durum wheat semolina, such as Bellata Gold 3 tsp (10gm) fine sea salt

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a large saucepan over low-medium heat, add oil, onion and rosemary and sauté until tender (8-10 minutes). Squeeze sausage meat from casing and add to pan, break into chunks with a wooden spoon, season to taste, add garlic and cook until aromatic and browned (2-3 minutes). Deglaze pan with wine and reduce liquid by half (2-3 minutes). Add canned tomatoes and cherry tomatoes and simmer over low heat until well reduced but still retaining some moisture (1-1½ hours).
  • 02
  • For pasta dough, combine semolina and salt in a large bowl, mix in 120ml water with a wooden spoon, transfer to a work surface and knead until smooth and elastic (10 minutes). Wrap in a slightly damp clean tea towel and set aside to rest (1 hour).
  • 03
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and roll to 1cm thick. Cut into 1cm cubes and coat generously with flour. Hold the malloreddus board (see note) in one hand and rest the base of it on the bench. Place a piece of dough at the top of the board and use your thumb to squash and drag the dough down (the dough should curl slightly around your thumb to resemble a ridged shell), then set aside on a lightly floured tray. Repeat with remaining dough. Place in a colander and gently shake off excess flour, then cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (5-7 minutes). Drain pasta, add to sauce and cook until coated (1-2 minutes), then stir through radicchio, parsley and grated pecorino. Serve hot with shaved pecorino.
Note Dried malloreddus, also known as gnocchetti Sardi, is available from select delicatessens. Malloreddus boards, also known as gnocchi boards, are available from select kitchenware shops.

This recipe is from the November 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
