  • Yields: 6

Ingredients

1kg diced lamb (I had a butcher debone and dice a leg piece of lamb)

1 large onion diced

2 cloves garlic minced

3 tsp mild curry powder

1/2 tsp minced ginger

2 small green granny smith cooking apples, pealed, cored and diced

1/2 cup beef stock liquid

1/2 cup fruit chutney

Cornflour to thicken

Directions

1Place all ingredients (except cornflour) into slow cooker

2Cook on HIGH for 2hrs then LOW for 3hrs (which is the same as 5hrs on auto)

3This dish would be ok cooked longer on just low also if you are not there to change it or wish it to cook all day

41/2 hr prior to serving, mix 2-3 tbsp cornflour with 1 tbsp water to form a paste and stir through dish. Leave lid slightly ajar for that last half hour to thicken.

5Serve with creamy mashed potato or rice and crusty bread rolls.

I have to admit i was cautious about this one as I’m not big on spicy food but the flavours are amazing i served with rice and it was lovely.

My husband’s favourite, he’d have it every night if I let him. Always meets with a resounding “Yum!”

A family favourite- even my sister who “doesn’t like lamb” had seconds

I’m sure you could 🙂

Very low on meat at present so decided to use the 3 sausages I had left plus a tin of cannolli beans in place of the lamb.
Added mushrooms and zucchini also.
As previous times I have cooked this recipe it once again has not failed me with the lovely flavour.
Now I know I will be able to make it a non meat just substituting with beans.
Thank you Paulene.

I’m from Australia 🙂

I cut up a bone in lamb leg in small 1/2 inch cubes and times and a halved the ingredients as I had about 3 lbs lamb.after removing the bone. Very tasty and will be making this again. Not sure where all you are from using kilos and kangaroo but we are from the Seattle area in The US. Got your idea from the Yummly app. Thanks for the great dinner.

Yes I’d double everything 🙂

If I double the recipe, do I double the liquids. Love this recipe.

It adds the sweet
Pop it in the dumpbag 🙂

Does the apple make a difference? I need to make dump bags (for hubby), and dont think i can rely on him to put the apple in on the day.

OMG! This was fantastic!!! So yummy. Had some leftover so can’t wait for lunch tomorrow to have some more!!!

I use Keen’s too 🙂 My kids all like it (3-14) but if you are worried you could cut back the curry a smidge so it’s not so noticeable 🙂

Hi just wondering what curry powder fo you use.. i generally use KEENS?

And is this suitable for younger kids? Is it spicy?

Another winner loved it.

Sure you could. You may just wish to add the apples on the day of cooking 🙂

This was really good. Do you think it could be assembled raw and frozen for a freezer dump bag meal, to defrost overnight and throw in the slow cooker Ina weekday morning?

It’s quite forgiving of extra time
Especially if your slow cooker is quite full
You could even do a double batch and it could easily go 8hrs + on low

If I wanted to leave it on all day what length of time, on low, would you suggest? Thanks!

I use the Rosella brand of fruit chutney myself
And yes diced is fine 🙂

Beautiful! So easy to make and really tasty. I made this with stewing pieces so I needed to cook it for a few more hours. Now a favourite.

It sometimes doesn’t need thickening at the end so I wait and see 🙂

Do you know what would happen if you added the cornflour in with all the other ingredients rather than adding it towards the end?

Such an easy and very tasty meal. I added carrots also.

Has become a regular family favourite! Especially great for winter-time!

I usually get a vegetable soup pack to chop up and pop in it to veg it up.

It’s not a strong/hot curry at all no
But why not reduce the curry in half again first time you cook it until you see what he thinks?
You can always increase it the next time then if he’s ok with it 🙂

My hubby doesn’t like curry but I love it. Is it a real curry taste? Do you think a non-curry eater would like it? Thanks.

This is one of my favourite things I’ve cooked so far! I haven’t ever had a sweet curry. It was delicious! I served with white rice and Pappadams . Will definitely make again.

You are most welcome – so pleased you loved it!

We tried this tonight and it was delish ! The sweetness from the apples and fruit chutney was a nice change from my usual curry dishes. I served it with mashed potatoes, steamed veg and some hot dinner rolls . I had five clean plates and a serve left over for a nice warm lunch tomorrow. Thank you for sharing

Made this for dinner last night, delicious ! Thumbs up from all the family.
I didn’t have fruit chutney so used Green Tomato Relish. Turned out great. Thank you Paulene

A great family dinner. It is not too spicy for the kids to eat it. It has become one of our favourite dinners. I use lamb shoulder. I get the butcher to debone it and I dice the meat before adding to the slowcooker. The meat is meltingly tender. Highly recommend.

Thanks for leaving feedback – so pleased you enjoy it 🙂

Simply delicious, so tasty and beautiful flavor. A must try!
