Spiced Lamb Curry



Spiced Lamb Curry

Today marks the start of National Curry Week which runs from the 12th -18th October 2015. To celebrate, I've created this delicious lamb curry using diced shoulder of Welsh Lamb with heaps of fragrant Indian spices.

A mild chicken korma is usually the preference in these parts as I know it's something the kids will eat it! It was therefore quite refreshing to try something a bit different with the spices notched up a peg or two. It's spicy but not hot  - I just served some natural yogurt alongside for the kids. If you do like your curry a little bit hotter though just add another red chilli to the equation.

  4. Lamb or beef is so good with curry, strong flavors of lamb and beef match perfectly with all spices and created a very comfortable taste. I like the lamb to be really tender, guess I can finish this in the pan to speed up the process. :)
