Recipe

  1. Remember to defrost your meat! Defrost in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on ‘defrost’ directly before use.

    This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan, add the onions and garlic and cook for 10 minutes.

  3. Add the turmeric, chilli, curry powder, ground coriander and the tomato purée and cook for a further minute.

  4. Add the diced lamb, water, tomatoes, lemon juice and coriander leaf.

  5. Simmer for 15 minutes, then season to taste and serve with rice.

  6. Remember to freeze any portions you don’t eat this time to save them from going in the bin. A great time saver for a simple meal another day when you may be busy. Simply defrost in the fridge and use within 24 hours.
