Lamb Roghan Josh with Spinach
The spice blend for this dish - based on an old Charmaine Solomon recipe - is very complex, involving ginger, and garlic, whole and ground spices, toasted coconut, poppy seeds, yoghurt and ground almonds.
We cook it down with onions, cardamon pods and turmeric, then stir through diced lamb shoulder, yoghurt and tomatoes for a long, slow cook. We fold through the finished curry with baby spinach, fresh coriander and some toasted garam masala.
Serve with the chickpea, eggplant and coconut curry, spiced rice, a cucumber raita, chutneys and poppadoms.
LOW CARB: Serve with cauliflower "rice" - pulse-chop cauliflower in a food processor until broken into rice-sized pieces. Toss in a dry frying pan with a pinch of salt, adding spices like turmeric and cumin seeds if you'd like.
