Thermomix Afghani Lamb and Spinach Curry

"Delicious! This recipe is specifically for the Thernomox. But it could be easily adapted for use without. I couldn't find Spinach or Kale in my local shop, so I used lettuce - worked great! I served this dish over rice with plain yogurt on the side"

1hr 20mins




  • Place the lemon zest in TM bowl and grate 20 seconds/speed 9. Set aside.
  • Place garlic in TM bowl. Chop 10 seconds/speed 9. Reduce to speed 5 and drop onion onto moving blades for 5 seconds. Set aside.
  • Heat oil 1 minute 30 seconds/Varoma/speed 1. Add lamb. Cook 3 minutes/Varoma/Reverse/Speed 1. Set aside.
  • Return garlic and onion mixture to bowl along with spices and cook 3 minutes/100 degrees/Speed 1 1/2.
  • Add lamb, canned tomatoes (undrained) and stock. Cook 60 minutes/100 degrees/Reverse/Speed 1 1/2 without the measuring cup. If there is a lot of spattering, place the basket on top - this allows the steam to escape, the sauce to thicken and reduces spatter.
  • About 10 minutes before the end add the lemon rind.
  • Cut the greens into bite sized pieces and place in a large serving bowl. Pour the lamb curry over all. Stir until the greens have wilted. Serve over rice with almonds sprinkled over the top.

Although I am a US citizen, I have spent most of my adult life living outside of the States. I've raised my family all over the world - and I have to say that my four kids are pretty terrific! I am always looking for recipes that only call for basic ingredients. Because I don't live in the US, I often can't find packages or this, or jars and cans of that, even certain spices can be tricky. My favorite cookbooks are the New Joy of Cooking, and anything by Nigela Lawson. My passions are cooking and eating - big surprise there. I have no pet peeves, I don't keep any peeves around long enough to make them into pets. I especially love baking, but I'm trying to get away from that - the carbs are starting to stick to my hips a little too easily. I took a Sushi making course recently. It was a lot of fun; I now know that I need to GO OUT for Sushi, not make it myself.
