Method

  1. Heat the slow cooker if you need to. Season the lamb, then brown it in batches for 5-8 mins using a little oil for each batch. Transfer each batch of lamb to the slow cooker.

  2. Put the onions in a frying pan with a little more oil and fry, stirring, for around 10 mins until tender. Stir in the garlic, ginger, spices, chilli and tomato purée and fry together for 1 min more. Add everything to the slow cooker.

  3. Pour 200ml boiling water into the slow cooker and mix everything well. Cook on a low heat for at least 6 hrs.

  4. After at least 6 hrs of cooking, add the yogurt and stir well. Replace the lid and cook for a further 1½ to 2 hrs on low. Once cooked, scatter over the coriander and flaked almonds and serve with the rice.

Spot on! Minor changes due to what I had or didn't have, but can't imagine it made much difference to the end result and delicious flavours. I used a diced leg of lamb, didn't have the green chilli, and forgot to add the yoghurt, coriander and flaked almonds at the end!! So eager to eat it when I got home from work! It had been on low for 8 hours and still in the pot for another 45-60 minutes. It was fall apart lamb curry at its absolute best. This is the only recipe I will use now for lamb.
