SLOW COOKER LAMB AND POTATO CURRY
With kids back to school and lots of after school activities going on, a good one pot wonder that can be made ahead is golden! This a super tasty and mild curry!
800g Lean Lamb, fat removed and cubed
2 Onions, peeled and cut into wedges
2-3 Garlic Cloves, sliced
3 Celery Sticks, sliced
5cm Root Ginger, peeled and grated
2 Green Chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
4 Curry Leaves
1 tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Ground Coriander
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tbsp Tomato Purée
150 ml Water
200ml Coconut Milk
225g Tomatoes, chopped
500g New Potatoes, scrubbed and cut into small chunks
2 Carrots, peeled and sliced
In a frying pan, heat the oil, add the onions, garlic and celery and fry gently for 5 mins or until softened.
Add the ginger, chillies and curry leaves, cook for a further 3 mins stirring constantly.
Add the lamb, ensure it is well coated in the spices and lightly browned.
Stir in the tomato purée, water, coconut milk and tomatoes and stir well.
Add the potatoes and carrots, stir well.
At this point you could let it cool and put it in the fridge until ready for the slow cooker. I made it to this point the night before then put it in the slow cooker the next morning for dinner that evening.
When ready put in the slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.
If you have no slow cooker, never fear, just use a large casserole, bring to the boil then transfer to the oven heated to 150c and cook for 3-4 hours or until tender.
Serve with Indian Breads for a lush hassle free midweek dinner.
