Coconut Lamb Curry and an Award

I made this yesterday easy to make and so good, hubby was not so keen on the coconut milk but I love the stuff!


  • chopped lamb with bones
  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 Cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tablespoon mutton masala powder
  • one spoon garam masala
  • 1/2 spoon coriander powder
  • 2 cloves
  • 3 green chili's
  • ginger/garlic paste
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 5 curry leaves
  • canola oil

  1. heat the oil and add the lamb with some masala powder and cook a little for 5 minutes and keep to one side
  2. then heat oil and ad the cinnamon and cloves, curry leaves, chili and onion and saute for 5 minutes
  3. add the tomato, ginger/garlic paste and garlic, coriander powder and masala power, turn to a low heat and let it reduce down to a paste
  4. then add the coconut milk, salt to taste and the lamb and let it slowly simmer for 20-30 minutes.
Great to eat with rice or chapatti.

Oh and the lovely Palidor passed this award on to me, she has a wonderful blog Crazy Asian Gal, I love the Beef Curry she just posted thanks so much I wish to give her the friends award
