Indya Bistro’s Apricot Lamb

Ideal for sharing with friends, we love this slow-cooked simple Autumn favourite. It has been perfected by Chef Wilson Gomes of Indya Bistro in Rathdowne Street, North Carlton. Combining gentle spices with fresh, simple ingredients, this unique curry is sure to please. The flavour and texture of the lamb and the apricot balance and complement each other perfectly. Great with rice or some warm naan bread.

  • 6.

    Cover the pan and simmer over a very low heat for 75 to 90 minutes, or until meat is very tender

  • 7.

    Stir occasionally to prevent scorching
