Easy Lamb Korma

This uses British lamb for a seasonal twist on chicken korma. The results are just as dreamily creamy with meltingly tender meat and gentle spices.


  • For the spice paste

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • ½ tsp ground ginger

  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper (optional – for extra heat)

  • 1 tsp medium curry powder

  • ½ tsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, toasted

  • 1 tbsp ground almond

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

    Grind all the spice ingredients to a paste in a pestle and mortar.

    Put the lamb in a large bowl and coat it thoroughly with the spice paste. Leave to marinate for at least 3 hours – overnight if you can.
