Tomato Trotters


1kg lamb trotters
2 chopped onions
½ teaspoon whole cloves
½ teaspoon crushed peppercorn
tomato puree
tomato paste
2 tomatoes (grated)
1 cup boiled water
100g sugar
3 tablespoons plain crushed garlic
8 chopped green chillies


Cook the trotters in salt water for 3-4 hours until they're nice and soft. While the trotters are cooking, braise the onions in a separate pot till golden brown. Add the cloves & the crushed peppercorn and stir. Add in the grated tomatoes, puree and paste at once, with a bit of boiled water, to thicken the sauce. Let it simmer for about 15 minutes. Keep stirring to prevent it from catching. Add the trotters and sugar, stir and allow to cook for approximately 30 minutes. After 30 minutes add the garlic & green chillies. Serve with white fluffy rice.
