Homemade Lamb Rogan Josh

Creating your own curry from scratch can seem a little daunting at first, but trust us, we’ve got you! This recipe is super easy to follow, and it may even be a chance to use up some spices that you have hidden at the back of the cupboard.

We recommend using lamb neck fillet for this recipe. It will be available at all good butchers, and most larger supermarkets. It has a lovely fat marbling, which breaks down through slow cooking, leaving you with meat that melts in the mouth.

This recipe requires some upfront work in the pan, to brown off the meat, cook the onions and stir in all of the spices. After that, transfer everything to the slow cooker and let it take the strain.

Serve this with all your favourite curry side dishes, for a proper Slow Cooker Sundays curry night!
