We eat this a lot, sometimes using beef or chicken, and find this an easy dish when we want a quick curry fix. You can add a couple of peeled, diced pootatoes and about 2 cups of water for the final 30 minutes of cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and gently fry the onion, garlic and ginger until soft and golden.
  2. Add the curry powder, salt and vinegar and stir thoroughly.
  3. Add the lamb and cook, stirring constantly until the lamb is coated with the spice mixture.
  4. Add the tomatoes, chillies and mint.
  5. Cover and cook over a very low heat for 1 1/4 hours or until the lamb is tender, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the garam masala and chopped coriander in the last 5 minutes of cooking.
  7. *note-the tomatoes should provide enough liquid for the meat to cook in, but if necessary, add a little hot water, (approximately 1/2 a cup) just enough to stop the meat sticking to the saucepan.

I loved this curry! It was a choice between yours and a rated one. I'm glad I picked this one. I had basically everything on hand, and it was geat. I thickened it slightly with cornflour at the end. A thicker sauce is personal choice. Congrats!!
