Lamb Shank

Braised Bahmia Lamb Shank

Le Meridien’s executive sous chef Mohd Budiman Bistari never misses a chance to prepare his Braised Bahmia Lamb Shank for his family each year.

“This is a two-part dish, as you have to prepare the lamb shanks and marinate them first while the gravy is prepared separately,” said Mohd Budiman.

He also cooked a chickpea and eggplant puree, as a healthier starch alternative, with an optional side of organic vegetables.

“You can use fillets for the meat portion, but it is better to get the shanks, because the bone marrow and collagen really add flavour to the stock,” said Mohd Budiman.
“My family doesn’t mind the variations to the dish as long as the main taste from the tomatoes is there, plus they also enjoy the occasional surprise such as the sweet fruits in the Bahmia gravy,” he added.
