We had guests last night and decided to make this . I used 1kg of diced lamb (half was lamb chops and half was lamb rumps as I used what was in the freezer, just removed bones and most of fat) it was absolutely delicious. Only changes I made was extra meat and a little more coconut cream plus I left out the mushrooms and forgot to add the spinach haha but I did stir through roasted cashews at the end. Served with fluffy rice , warm tortillas and garlic yoghurt.

Amazing, both hubby and I went back for seconds!
I had my doubts, and did tweak a little but the flavours were just lovely, and the meat so tender.
My tweaks:
I left the meat to marinade in the curry paste first overnight, then floured and seared it.
I blended up the chic peas, tomatoes, onions and garlic cos I like a smoother curry sauce….and left out the mushrooms (as hubby doesn’t like them).
I put quite a lot of spinach in but will add even more next time as i love spinach.

This will be a weekly treat from now on!

This is one of my new fave “go to” recipes. Non complicated ingredients, pretty cheap & everyone who’s eaten it has loved it.
