  • Large handful of roughly chopped coriander
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Meat Masala (this can be shop bought or try to grind your own – see my recipe below)


  • Slow Cooker (I have a Crockpot)
  • (or alternatively you could do this in the oven on a low temp and cover tightly with foil)


  1. Marinate the lamb in the yoghurt, salt and turmeric for 1-2 hours
  2. Fry the thinly sliced onions in a tablespoon of oil until softened and brown with the Chilli, Ginger and chilli paste (this is the only real cooking you will need to do!)
  3. Now throw all the of the ingredients into your slow cooker with your marinated lamb and give it a good mix. (Except the fresh coriander and Garam masala). Set to Med/High setting and cook for 6-8 hours. (15mins from the end add in the Garam masala)
  4. Serve with Rice, Naans, tomato salad and a nice yoghurt Raita
