This is a brilliant mini roast, complete with deep-fried crispy sweetbreads and tasty mashed potatoes.
Put chopped carrot, onion, bay leaf and peppercorns into a pot lay the sweetbreads on top. Sprinkle with a little salt, add vinegar and cover with water. Bring up to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes only, allow to cool in liquor. Trim carefully, take off only the hard bits and allow to keep together in one piece.
Trim the lamb, leave some fat on. Heat oil then add the butter. Seal and colour the lamb on the outside, season and put into the oven 210c.
Meanwhile put potatoes to boil in jackets. Take out the lamb and allow to rest, pour off excess fat and add quarter of the shallots. Fry to colour and add the white wine except 1 tbsp. Reduce by half and strain into clean pot. Add rest of shallots and stock and allow to simmer away slowly. Mix 1tbsp white wine with the mustard and brush the outside of the lamb. Roll the lamb in chives.
Strain and drain the potatoes and crush mix with capers and olive oil and season.
Break sweetbreads into nugget sized pieces, roll in flour, shake off excess, dip in beaten egg and then dip carefully into breadcrumbs mixed with mint. Roll to keep breadcrumbs on. Fry in oil and butter golden brown and take out and drain on paper, keep warm.
If you want to be posh, put the hot potato mixture into a 2 ½inch ring on centre of plate; you can use a spoon if you prefer.
Slice the lamb and lay 3 slices on top of potatoes round one edge and 3 round the other. Pile the sweetbreads in the middle of lamb. Add butter to sauce and shake in, check seasoning and add parsley and serve round the dish.
Food like this is crying out for a good red wine.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
