This month, our recipe is for Andhra Lamb Curry.  A personal favourite of Chef Stephen Gomes; it was the focus for his recent main course dish – 5000 Miles from Andhra on the Great British Menu 2015.  Inspired by a project undertaken by the Derbyshire Women’s Institute, who raised money to provide safe drinking water in the drought affected villages of the Khammam District of Andhra Pradesh in India; Stephen’s dish celebrated the inspirational nature of the WI.
