Baked Lamb with Potato, Garlic and Rosemary
This recipe enables you to cook the meat and the potato together at the same time. I like to use an oval heatproof gratin dish for it – but a very small roasting tin would do as well. Our recipe picture does have more than two chops, but is the same method.

First of all peel the potato and cut it into small (½ inch, 5 mm) cubes, then put the cubes in a clean tea-cloth and dry them as thoroughly as possible.
The rosemary should be crushed or bruised with a pestle and mortar, then finely chopped.
Next peel the garlic and cut a few slivers off; then, using a sharp knife, make a few little pockets in the chops and insert a small sliver of garlic into each one (the rest of the garlic should be chopped small).
Now place the gratin dish on a high heat and heat the oil in it.
As soon as it's hot add the cubes of potato, the onion and the chopped garlic and toss them around in the hot oil. Then make two spaces amongst the potato etc, and sit the chops in them.
Sprinkle half the rosemary over the chops and the rest over the potatoes.
Season everything with salt and pepper, then transfer the gratin dish to the high shelf in the oven to bake (uncovered) for about 25 minutes.
After that remove the dish, spoon the chopped tomatoes into the potatoes, and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
Then serve the chops with the potato mixture spooned over them.

For many years, Delia avoided this sumptuous recipe on humanitarian grounds. But eventually she summoned the courage - and was delighted that she did!
I admit that, having tried kedgeree on several occasions with brown rice, I have now come to the conclusion that it is always better made with white rice (which also happens to be a lot quicker).
I've adapted this from a Jewish recipe in which the cakes are coated in matzo meal before frying. Failing that of course wholewheat or even plain flour will do perfectly well.

A great midweek supper, with everything cooked together. Lamb and aubergines partner each other beautifully, offering more than a hint of Mediterranean flavour.
