½ cup Thai red curry paste

2 tbsp lime juice

1 Preheat oven to 180C. Heat oil in a large, deep ovenproof casserole dish over medium-high heat. Add 2 shanks and cook for 10 minutes or until browned on all sides. Transfer to a plate. Cook remaining lamb shanks and transfer to plate.

4 Return shanks to casserole with lime leaves. Cover and place in oven. Cook for 1½-2 hours or until meat is very tender. Remove lid and cook for a further 15 minutes.

5 Spoon rice onto a large serving plate. Top with a shank, sauce, sprigs of coriander and Thai basil leaves.

Note: The flavour of curry pastes varies greatly between brands. Taste before adding to pan.
