While I’m working on my cookbook and still waiting to get into groove with my kitchen at our new home, I’m tickled to have so many great guest posters on Friday. Today we have a delicious and easy Lamb Curry recipe from my friend Justyn who blogs over at Creative Christian Mama. Thanks Justyn!!
Indian food is one of our favorite ethnic foods to eat, but it can get crazy expensive to eat at the restaurant. My culinary genius of a husband decided to start making our own, which I then adapted to the crock pot. This recipe is fabulous with chicken, beef or lamb- our favorite is the lamb!
Although you’ll save money by making your own Indian food, be sure to splurge on the curry powder. A high-quality curry powder is what will make this dish so good that your four-year-old will gobble it up like ours did! Although curry is typically served with rice, I love to use couscous, which cooks up in just a few minutes.
Crock Pot Lamb Curry
- 1 ½ pound lamb (leave in large pieces, so it will be easier to remove) chicken and beef are also a good substitute
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tablespoons curry powder (ours has ground coriander, turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, yellow mustard, white pepper, ginger, cinnamon, chili powder, cloves, cardamom, fennel)
- 1 teaspoon garam masala
- Salt and pepper
- ½ cup sour cream, yogurt or buttermilk
- Put the onions and garlic in the crock pot and stir in the curry powder and garam masala.
- Add the meat and sprinkle with a little more curry powder and some salt and pepper.
- Cook on high 1 hour and then low 5 hours.
- Carefully remove the meat and then puree the onions, garlic and meat juices with an immersion blender.
- Shred the meat (removing any bones!) and return it to the crockpot.
- Stir in the sour cream (or yogurt or buttermilk) and add more curry powder, salt or pepper, as needed.
- Serve over rice or couscous.
