Making Roti Jala with New Zealand Lamb Tandoori

The Roti Jala with New Zealand Lamb Tandoori transformed the traditional pancake by filling and rolling it with tandoori-spiced New Zealand lamb, which had been marinated with Anlene plain yoghurt to retain its juiciness.

And finally! this was our group Roti Jala with New Zealand Lamb Tandoori presentation. Although we did not win the cooking challenge, it was fun and great experience. Now I can make my own roti jala at home and mind you New Zealand Lamb Tandoori is so, tender, juicy and spicy too. I tried making Oriental style Rack of Lamb using Pure South New Zealand; its was epic, check out my recipe HERE
