Once cooked place to one side and leave for 15 minutes to absorbrepparttar juices. Takerepparttar 136660 roasting tin and allrepparttar 136661 juices and filter through a fine sieve. This is what you will use forrepparttar 136662 stock. Put this back into a pan and reduce down, you may need to add a little cornflour to thicken depending on how you like your stock. The Greeks like it quite thick, I'm told by my www.helensrecipes.com staff.

You can preparerepparttar 136663 side dish at any time as you only need to reheat it for a few minutes. In a blender put allrepparttar 136664 side dish ingredients and roughly blend (blitz function) - note this should not be a puree - you need to keep some texture.

I love to serve this dish with baby new boil potatoes which have been left to cool. Put a few inrepparttar 136665 middle of a plate and place some lamb onrepparttar 136666 top, then drizzlerepparttar 136667 pea and mint aroundrepparttar 136668 plate.

If it's dinner forrepparttar 136669 family I would suggest some roast potatoes, lamb covered in thick gravy andrepparttar 136670 pea and mint as a side.

So ... cut down on your milk portion. Add a little milk torepparttar oatmeal, then add your dry ingredients, then slowly mix, adding more milk a little bit at a time as necessary.

One other change -- since you'll be using less milk,repparttar 136611 baking powder in your mix won't have as much acid to react to. This means your biscuits won't rise like they normally do unless you give them a little bit of help. I like to toss a squeeze of lemon juice intorepparttar 136612 mix. You won't tasterepparttar 136613 lemon, but it'll supercharge your baking powder.

Again, your dough will be a little frothy. You'll use less milk andrepparttar 136614 dough will not be as dense as usual. If you're rollingrepparttar 136615 dough and using a biscuit cutter, roll your dough a little thicker than normal before cutting.

That's all -- bake as normal and your result will be biscuits light enough to float offrepparttar 136616 pan!
