Begin by preparing the lobster. Carefully crack the tails and remove the meat, reserving the shells to serve if desired. Chop the meat into 2cm chunks and set aside
  • 4 lobster tails

For the masala sauce, add the oil to a large pan and place over a medium heat. Once hot, add the whole spices to the pan and fry for a few seconds until fragrant
  • 3 tbsp of oil
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 4 cloves
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds

Add in the sliced shallots and split chillies, then sauté for a few minutes until golden-brown. Add the ginger and garlic paste to the pan and continue to fry for 5–6 minutes, then stir in the ground spices and cook for another 5 minutes

  • 1 tbsp of ginger and garlic paste
  • 1 tsp turmeric

Transfer 4 spoonfuls of the tomato base to a separate small pan and keep warm over a gentle heat until ready to serve

Meanwhile, add the lobster meat to the remaining sauce and simmer gently in the sauce for 10 minutes, adding a little water if it seems too dry. Check for seasoning and adjust as needed
