Healthy Lamb Curry Recipe Homemade Indian Lamb Curry
Homemade Healthy Lamb Curry Recipe, Easy Indian Lamb Curry, made with just a few simple Indian spices, fresh vegetables and herbs. Simple step by step method.
We have used lamb leg meat for this lamb curry recipe because it is much easier to cut and remove the fat. To ensure the lamb cooks fairly quickly cut it into small 1/2 inch pieces. There's nothing worse than waiting hours for meat to soften.
You can add any of your favourite vegetables to curry and experiment with other vegetables you would like to try.
Remember that any root vegetable such as carrots, potatoes or sweet potato need to be streamed or boiled until just cooked before adding them to the curry.
Fresh is best. If you have spices in your cupboard which have been there for a long time, throw them and buy a fresh supply. Spices do lose their aroma and flavour.
