  1. Heat a large pan or wok with a lid and brown the meatballs for about 5 mins, the fat from the lamb should stop them sticking, but add a splash of water if you need to. Stir in the curry paste, coconut milk and 1⁄2 a can of water, and bring it to a simmer.

  2. Tip in the potatoes, then cover and cook for 20 mins. Add the rest of the vegetables and cook, uncovered, for about 3-4 mins more, or until the veg and potatoes are cooked to your liking. Check the seasoning and serve straight away with rice.

This is a super-easy midweek curry. My boyfriend isn't a big fan of potatoes and we felt that with rice as well, the potatoes were a bit of starch-overkill. Next time I'll make it without. Easy to modify to your spice preferences by which curry paste you use, couldn't be simpler.
