Low Fat Balti Lamb Curry (Or Beef)

"Adapted from Super Food Ideas July 06. Our friend Carol asked me for a curry recipe, I gave her this recipe and she made it in the crockpot with beef instead of lamb. We had it today and it was excellent. By the way I found this info on Google, Balti Curry is a style of curry developed in Birmingham, England in the 70's, which has spread to other western countries."
