Easy Healthy Lamb & Chickpea Curry
Oh hey, I managed to sit down and get a recipe on the blog before you all forgot about me! It’s an Easy Lamb & Chickpea Curry, one which I have made many times. I love this recipe for how quick it takes to make and how it only requires a few staple ingredients from your cupboard. While I love to cook, I find dinner times draining and having to make something complicated at night time is not my favourite thing. I usually am so tired, and the thought of having to pull or more than one pan or dish to make dinner is just not happening. So I have a rule that it can slow cook on the stove but if it requires a million steps and bowls it won’t be on my meal plan. That rules out Lasagna (much to my husband's dismay) because it’s got WAY too many steps and way too much equipment required to cook it. Plus I can’t eat it anyway (gluten & dairy free here )
However with winter on its way I love to start adding into rotation warm, cosy comfort food recipes that fill the belly but don’t require a lot of time in the kitchen. Sound like something you want to make? I hope so. You may look at the list of ingredients and think why on earth there is sultana’s and apple in here but trust me they add a lovely sweetness to the curry and compliment the lamb nicely. I forgot to add them once, and hubby said it didn’t taste the same, so the addition of these ingredients is a must. Unless you are allergic to them - then don't! I have made this recipe in a pan on the stove top, however by all means pop it in a slow cooker ahead of time and cook it for 4-6 hours until the lamb is tender. A perfect set and forget recipe.
I have just used a supermarket brand curry powder (Keen’s brand) however if you have a favourite curry powder in your cupboard use that instead. I hope you enjoy it and would love for you to let me know if you add it your recipe rotation!
