Ingredients for this recipe for curry lamb

This recipe is good for 2 to 3 people and may even stretch to 4 with some added vegetables and/or by serving with extra rice.

You will need:

1 medium heat red chilli pepper

1 red sweet bell pepper

1 onion

1  400g can of chopped tomatoes

1  400ml can of coconut milk

around 250g diced lamb


2 tsp medium curry powder (or according to your taste)

1/4 tsp mixed spice

1/2 tsp dried garlic

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp nutmeg

optional: A good handful of fresh spinach

How to make it

Chop the onions and the sweet pepper (capsicum)

Finely chop the hot pepper

Fry them all in a little oil (or 'dry fry' in a little water) for a few minutes

Add the diced lamb and stir fry to brown it a little

Next mix in the spices then add the tomatoes and coconut milk. 

Bring everything to a boil then turn down the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and the lamb is cooked

The mix will be a little runny at the start but should thicken up once the lamb is cooked.  If it doesn't thicken, take a spoon of cornflour (corn starch) and mix it with a little cold (it must not be warm or hot) water.  Drizzle this into the mix while stirring and it should thicken up nicely.  Repeat if its not thick enough for your own liking

You can optionally mix in a generous handful of fresh spinach, letting it wilt just before serving

For variety you can use different vegetables such as courgette (zucchini) or mushrooms.  Minced lamb is also an interesting variation
