Lamb Curry

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Jenny Sanders

I adapted this from several other lamb curries, until I had one that I thought was just right! Commercial curry powder mixtures make a good starting point to customize in your own way, and in spite of the length of the ingredient list this is not at all difficult to put together.

This was good. Added some peas, and only used spices at half amounts so it was milder - next time will make with full. Will make again. Thanks.

  1. Grind the fennel and cumin seeds finely, and mix all the dry spices in a small bowl.
  2. Peel and chop the onions; mince the Jalapenos and grate the ginger.
  3. Saute the onions in the oil until soft and translucent.
  4. Add the meat, turn up the heat a bit, and brown them both, stirring frequently.
  5. Add the minced jalapenos and grated ginger and the mixed spices.
  6. Stir in the water and the yogurt; simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring regularly to prevent sticking, until the meat is tender and the sauce is quite thick.
  7. NOTE: You can replace the yogurt with crushed tomatoes for a slightly different dish.
