The perfect transition meal between winter and spring, follow our easy recipe for homemade lamb curry. 

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1kg lamb shoulder, cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
  • 2 onions, finely chopped.,
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced.
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated.
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped.
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree.
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin.
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander.
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric.
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala.
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder (adjust to taste).
  • Salt, to taste.
  • 1 cup water or beef stock.
  • Fresh coriander leaves, for garnish.
  • Cooked rice or naan bread, for serving.


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and cook until softened and lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pot, and cook for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste to the pot, and cook for 5-7 minutes until the tomatoes have softened and broken down.
  4. Stir in the ground cumin, ground coriander, ground turmeric, garam masala, chilli powder, and salt. Cook the spices with the tomato mixture for 2-3 minutes to toast them and develop flavour.
  5. Add the bite-sized pieces of lamb to the pot, stirring well to coat them in the spice mixture. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the lamb is browned on all sides.
  6. Pour in the water or beef stock, stirring to deglaze the bottom of the pot and scrape up any browned bits. Bring the curry to a simmer.
  7. Cover the pot with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Let the curry simmer gently for 1.5 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the lamb is tender and the sauce has thickened. If the curry becomes too dry, you can add a bit more water or stock as needed.
  8. Once the lamb is tender and the sauce has reached your desired consistency, taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt or chilli powder if necessary.
  9. Serve the home-style lamb curry hot, garnished with fresh coriander leaves. Enjoy with steamed rice or warm naan bread for a comforting and satisfying meal.
