Serves: 6

Preparation Time: 25 minutes

Cooking Time: 2 hours




  • 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) lean boned leg of lamb
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 125g (4 1/2 oz, 1/2 cup) low fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon of corriander
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon of ground tumeric
  • 1/2 tablespoon of ground cloves
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 400g (14 oz) tin diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 3 tablespoons of slivered almonds
  • 400g (14 oz/ 2 cups) basmati rice, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon of garam masala
  • chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves, to serve




  • Begin by trimming the lamb and cut into small cubes.

  • Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan; add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until soft.

  • Stir in the yogurt, chilli powder, coriander, cumin, cardamom, tumeric, cloves, garlic and ginger.

  • Add the tomato and salt and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Add the lamb and stir until coated.

  • Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 1-1 1/2 hours until the lamb is tender. Uncover and simmer until the liquid thickens.

  • Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a dry pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, shaking the pan gently until the nuts are golden brown. Remove from pan at once to prevent them burning.

  • Put the rice and 1 litre (35fl oz/4 cups) water in a saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and cook for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Remove from the heat and leave to stand, covered for 5 minutes.

  • Add the garam masala to the curry and mix through well. Sprinkle the slivered almonds and coriander leaves over the top and serve with rice.
